Time to Spring Ahead — Daylight Saving Time Starts Sunday
Daylight Saving Time begins Sunday, March 12, 2017.
The time change officially takes place at 2 a.m., but you don’t have to spring out of bed and move the big hand on your clock ahead an hour. The change is automatic for most smartphones, computers, tablets and other digital devices.
If you’re still using an analog alarm clock, you’ll probably want to move it ahead before you go to sleep on Saturday, or when you wake up the next morning.
This is also a good time to change the batteries and make sure your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors are in working order.
The sun will set just before 7 p.m. on Sunday.
