Iowans can enjoy the dwindling twilight hours before the end of Daylight Saving Time pushes dusk earlier, as far as our clocks go.

The switch to standard time begins Sunday, Nov. 5, 2023. Be sure to “fall back” and set your clocks back one hour before you go to bed on Saturday, Nov. 4.

Daylight Saving Time ends annually on the first Sunday in November.

We “lose” one hour of daylight, but “gain” an hour of sleep that weekend.

The switch back to Daylight Saving Time happens at 2 a.m., the second Sunday in March.
