Daylight Saving Time ends 2 am Sunday, November 1


Daylight Saving Time comes to an end Sunday morning at 2 am. Be sure to set your clocks back one hour before going to bed Saturday night. This would also be a good time to check the batteries in your smoke detector and NOAA Weather Radio receiver.
