Daylight saving time arrives this weekend.

While we don’t observe daylight saving time in Hawaii, if you travel, call, or web conference with people that do observe the time change, you need to remember that their clocks are now an additional hour ahead.

Daylight saving time officially starts on Sunday at 2:00 a.m. local time. However, most observers of the time change will be setting their clocks ahead an hour when they go to bed Saturday night.

In the United States, daylight saving time is not observed in Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and the state of Arizona (with the exception of the Navajo Indian Reservation).

Daylight saving time ends Nov. 2.
