Clocks go forward in the United States for Daylight Savings Time Tonight

For the third year running, clocks go forward early with the start of Daylight Savings 2009 in the United States.

In the United States Daylight Saving Time begins at 2:00 a.m. local time Sunday March 8. You need to turn your clocks ahead one hour. Arizona, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, U.S. Virgin Islands and American Samoa do not observe Daylight Savings Time.

The best bet: when going to bed Saturday night, put your clock forward then. Daylight Savings Time ends the first Sunday in November (November 1, 2009.)


The early start is due to a law that extended Daylight Saving Time by four weeks beginning in 2007.
