WASHINGTON >> Most of the mainland is getting ready for the annual fall ritual of turning back clocks by one hour, giving those who relish it an extra hour of sleep this weekend.

Daylight saving time is ending and it’s back to standard time for most people in the United States.

The change comes at 2 a.m. local time Sunday, and the shift moves one hour of daylight to the morning from the evening.

Residents of Hawaii, most of Arizona and some U.S. territories don’t need to fiddle with their clocks because those places don’t observe daylight saving time. Europe made the change last weekend.

That means the time difference between Hawaii and the West Coast will be two hours on Sunday. The East Coast will have a five-hour time difference.

Daylight saving time returns at 2 a.m. local time on Sunday, March 12.
