When Does Time Change in November 2018?

Time change November 4,2018

It is that time of the year again when clocks are turned back to gain an extra hour of sleep. Daylight Saving Time (DST) ends at 2 a.m. on this Sunday, November 4th, in 2018.

Daylight Saving Time begins the second Sunday in March each year, moving clocks forward one hour so that we have more daylight at the end of the day. Hawaii and most of Arizona are excluded from Daylight Saving Time, and stay on standard time year-round. But the rest of the U.S. follows Daylight Saving Time and change the time two times a year.

Enjoy the extra hour of sleep!

Astronomical fall vs. meteorological fall
There are various ways to explain the start and end dates of fall. The two most commonly used are based on the astronomical calendar and the meteorological calendar. 

Astronomical fall
In the Northern Hemisphere summer ends and fall starts during September equinox, which occurs every year on September 21 to 23. Fall ends and winter starts at the moment of the December solstice, which occurs every year between December 20 and December 23. The starting and ending dates of fall are based on the changing position of Earth in relation to the sun, and then results of solar events of equinoxes and solstices.

Meteorological fall
Meteorological fall in most of the Northern Hemisphere is usually defined as the three months of September, October and November, starting with September 1st and ending on November 30th.
