Daylight saving time returns overnight

WASHINGTON (AP) — America is springing forward.

Most Americans trade an hour’s sleep this weekend for more evening sunshine to enjoy after work.

Officially the change to daylight saving time occurs at 2 a.m. Sunday, local time, though most folks set their clocks and watches ahead an hour before going to bed on Saturday.

In areas that observe the change, clocks fall back when standard time returns Nov. 7.
