RANDOLPH, NJ - It’s time to fall back as Daylight Savings Time comes to an end this weekend. 

TAPinto reminds readers to turn their clocks back one hour on or before 2 a.m. Sunday morning.

This adjustment typically takes place automatically on smartphones, computers and tablets. Those with non-automated devices will have to manually change the time.

With the end of Daylight Savings Time, the number of daylight hours will decrease gradually each day until the Winter Solstice on  Sat, Dec 21. 

According to Calendarpedia, in the Northern Hemisphere the day of the Winter Solstice is the shortest day of the year (the day with the least daylight and the longest night) and occurs every year between Dec 20 through Dec 23. 

According to the NJ Division of Fire Safety, the batteries in carbon monoxide and smoke detectors should be replaced when clocks are changed. Devices more than 10 years old should be replaced.
