NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The time to spring forward is near. On Sunday, March 12, Daylight Saving Time for 2017 will begin at precisely 2 a.m. that morning.
Standard Time will return, and it will stick around until 2 a.m. on Nov. 5, 2017.
We will lose an hour of sleep when 2 a.m. becomes 3 a.m. on March 12, and while some people love gaining the extra hour of afternoon daylight, most don’t enjoy losing the extra sleep.
Daylight Saving Time 2017 begins on Sunday, March 12 at 2 a.m. Turn your clocks forward one hour to 3 a.m.
Daylight Saving Time 2017 ends on Sunday, Nov. 5, 2017. Turn your clocks back one hour to 1 a.m.
Changing the clocks is always a good time to sync changing the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
Fire safety officials recommend changing those batteries at least once a year and replacing the detectors every 10 years, even if they’re hard-wired.
