Spring Ahead With Daylight Saving Time

North Bennet Street Clock

It is that time of year, to “Spring Ahead” by switching to Daylight Saving Time (and lose one hour of sleep). The official change is at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 12, 2017 when the correct time will be 3 a.m.

Public safety officials recommend using the daylight saving change as a reminder to replace batteries in smoke and carbon-monoxide detectors.

Daylight Saving Time lasts from the second Sunday of March to the first Sunday in November.
