Daylight saving time begins

Font size: [A] [A] [A]

Millions of Americans will lose an hour's sleep tonight - but not in the Virgin Islands.

Daylight saving time begins this weekend - at 2 a.m. Sunday - and most people in the mainland U.S. will set their clocks forward one hour.

The Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Northern Marianas and most of Arizona - excluding the Navajo Indian territories - do not observe daylight saving time.

After the change, the time in the Virgin Islands, which is in the Atlantic Time Zone, will be the same as in the Eastern Time Zone in the United States. That means schedules for TV shows in the territory will be on Eastern Daylight Time instead of falling an hour behind.

Daylight saving time ends at 2 a.m. on Nov. 2.
