AUSTIN, Texas - If you have clocks on walls, microwaves, refrigerators, ovens, your wrist, your vehicle (you get the idea), it's time to set it forward for daylight saving time. Most Americans will set their clocks 60 minutes later before heading to bed Saturday night, but daylight saving time officially starts at 2 a.m. local time Sunday March 8, 2015.
Sunrise on Sunday starts at 7:20 a.m. and sets at 6:55 p.m. The daylight hours will continue to get longer until the summer solstice on June 21st.
You lose an hour of sleep, but daylight saving time arrives with the promise of many months ahead with an extra hour of evening light. It's also a good time to put new batteries in warning devices such as smoke detectors and hazard warning radios.
The time change is not observed by Hawaii, most of Arizona, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Marianas. Daylight saving time ends Sunday, November 1, 2015.
