Daylight Savings Time Begins Sunday March 10 at 2AM
Get ready to spring forward! Daylight Savings Time begins Sunday morning, March 10th at 2AM.
You'll want to set your clocks ahead 1 hour before you go to bed on Saturday night. The net effect is that it will be lighter later at night and darker when you wake up in the morning.
Saturday night's sunset in Bar Harbor is at 5:33PM but on Sunday it will be at 6:34PM. Sunrise on Saturday is 5:53AM but on Sunday it will be at 6:51AM.
While you are changing your clocks it's a great idea to change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Do NOT take out the batteries, thinking you'll pick up new batteries when you go shopping at the store on Sunday. If you take out the batteries, replace them right away!
