End of “Daylight Saving Time”

sunriseClocks Go Back 1 Hour in Europe Sunday, Oct 30, 2016

Earlier sunrise in Europe as Daylight Saving Time (DST) ends and clocks are set back 1 hour on Sunday, October 30, 2016.

Lighter Mornings

Sunrise and sunset ill be about 1 hour earlier on Sunday, October 30, 2016, than the day before, so there will be more light in the morning as Europe returns to standard time

While USA & Canada end DST on, Nov 6, 2016, European countries synchronize their DST, which starts on the last Sunday of March and ends on the last Sunday of October.

Set Clocks Back or Ahead?

To remember which way to set your watch, keep in mind one of these sayings: “Spring forward, fall back” or “Spring ahead, fall behind.” The clocks spring ahead (= losing 1 hour) in the spring when DST starts, and fall behind 1 hour (= gaining 1 hour) when DST ends in the fall.
