Daylight Saving 2017: Don’t forget to turn your clocks forward

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.

To review:

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.
