Nov 3, 2019 - Daylight Saving Time Ends

Sunday, November 3, 2019 at 2:00 am clocks are turned backward 1 hour to Sunday, November 3, 2019, 1:00 am local standard time instead.

“Spring Forward – Fall Back”

This term is meant to trigger your memory to set your clocks forward 1 hour in the spring at the start of DST, and 1 hour back in the fall when DST ends.

A different way to remember which direction to set your clock for DST is that in the spring, you bring out (or forward) the garden furniture and in the fall you put it back.

In North America, it is common to use the word fall to denote the season, while other English-speaking countries usually call it autumn. “Spring Forward – Fall Back” is therefore a phrase most often heard in the USA and Canada.
