Daylight Saving Time

Don't touch that clock! Rest of nation falling back from DST

Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday morning for most of the United States, but Arizona residents won't have to switch their clocks — we don't observe DST.

In the rest of the country, when the clocks hit 2 a.m. on Sunday, they'll roll back to 1 a.m., and that hour will be repeated. So while most states — except Arizona and Hawaii — will see a 25-hour day on Sunday, we'll have our normal 24.

The Navajo Nation, which extends into Utah and New Mexico, observes DST, while the Hopi Reservation does not, as it lies entirely within the state of Arizona.

After the fall back, Arizona will again be in sync with the rest of the states in the Mountain Time Zone, and will be an hour ahead of California and other Pacific Time Zone states.
