FALL BACK: Daylight Saving Time 2021 ends this weekend



NOTTINGHAM, MD—It’s time to fall back.

Daylight Saving Time ends on Sunday, November 7, 2021, at 2:00 a.m. At this time, clocks “fall back” one hour, giving us more daylight in the dark autumn and winter mornings (along with an extra hour of sleep on Saturday night).

Daylight Saving Time (DST) in most of the United States starts on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November.

  • Daylight Saving Time began on Sunday, March 14, 2021 at 2:00 a.m. On that Saturday night, clocks were set forward one hour (i.e., losing one hour) to “spring forward.”
  • Daylight Saving Time ends on Sunday, November 7, 2021, at 2:00 a.m. On Saturday night, clocks are set back one hour (i.e., gaining one hour) to “fall back.”

Arizona is currently the only state in the U.S. that stays on “standard time” all year long.



The current daylight saving period was established with the Energy Policy Act of 2005, which went into effect in 2007.
