When Does The Zone Change?

Find out when the Time Zone Changes!

when does the time change

So you went to google and typed in "When Does the Time Zone Change?" Well you probably meant when does the time change, or when do I change my clocks, but it is a fair question. One time zone change is equivalent to setting your clocks back an hour or forward an hour.

Anyway, here is when to change your clocks. In the fall, you move the clock BACK one hour. In the spring, you go forward an hour (hence, losing an hour of sleep - or getting up an hour earlier). I'll give the dates for the next few years, as I don't know when you asked this question:

Here are the dates for when the clocks change in the United States (note Europe is on a slightly different schedule, see below):

In the USA:

  • Fall 2012 - Sunday, November 4th at 2am, the clocks will mysteriously go back to 1am.
  • Spring 2013 - Sunday, March 10th at 2am, the clocks move forward from 2am to 3am. Instantly.
  • Fall 2013 - Sunday, November 3rd at 2am.
  • Spring 2014 - Sunday, March 9th at 2am.
  • Fall 2014 - Sunday, November 2nd at 2am.
  • Spring 2015 - Sunday, March 8th, 2015 at 22am.

    The non-United States time zone changing schedule:

    And in Europe:

  • Autumm 2012 - 28th October at 1am
  • Spring 2013 - Sunday, March 31st, 2012 at 1am
  • Autumn 2013 - 27th October at 1am
  • Spring 2014 - Sunday, March 30, 2014 at 1am
  • Autumn 2014 - 26th October at 1am
  • Spring 2015 - Sunday, March 29, 2015 at 1am

    So in the Fall, you get an extra hour of sleep, so this is somewhat equivalent to going west one time zone. In the Spring, you lose an hour of sleep, so this is somewhat equivalent to travelling east by one time zone. And thus, we have established the equivalency of time zones and daylight savings time.

  • The fall is actually one of the best times to learn about electromagnetics, particularly Maxwell's Equations, which is the complete guiding equations behind Electric and Magnetic Fields.
