Daylight saving time ends: Did you remember to 'fall back'?

It’s time to “fall back” again.

Daylight saving time came to a close at 2 a.m. Sunday, which means it’s time to set your clocks back one hour if you haven’t already. 

That means sunrise and sunset will happen one hour earlier Sunday than the day before, bringing more light in the morning. 

The end of daylight saving time is also referred to as "winter time" and "fall back." 

Daylight saving time will begin again next year on March 11. 

Almost all of the states within the U.S. use daylight saving time, with the exception of Hawaii and most of Arizona, where residents don't need to worry about changing their clocks. 

None of the U.S. dependencies, including American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Northern Marina Islands, the U.S. Minor Outlying Islands and the U.S. Virgin Islands, are affected by daylight saving time. 

To remember which way to set your watch, keep in mind one of these sayings: “Spring forward, fall back” or “Spring ahead, fall behind.”

When daylight saving time starts in the spring, the clocks "spring" ahead, so you lose an hour. When DST ends in the fall, the clocks "fall" behind, so you gain an hour.
