Daylight Saving 2016: When do we turn back the clocks?

Daylight Saving Time

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (KLFY) The time to fall back is near. On Sunday, Nov. 6, Daylight Saving Time for 2016 comes to an end at precisely 2 a.m. that morning.

Standard Time will return, and it will stick around until 2 a.m. on March 12, 2017.

We get an extra hour of sleep when 2 a.m. becomes 1 a.m. on Nov. 6, and while some people don’t like losing the hour of afternoon daylight, that extra hour’s slumber has to be worth something.

To review:

Daylight Saving Time 2016 ends on Sunday, Nov. 6 at 2 a.m. Turn your clocks back one hour to 1 a.m.

Daylight Saving Time 2017 begins on Sunday, March 12 at 2 a.m. Turn your clocks forward one hour to 3 a.m.

Changing the clocks is always a good time to sync changing the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

Fire safety officials recommend changing those batteries at least once a year and replacing the detectors every 10 years, even if they’re hard-wired.
