Clocks fall back

Many Americans and Canadians will set their clocks back one hour to standard time from 2am (02:00) to 1am (01:00) local time on the first Sunday in November.

The clock changes will affect many cities in the USA’s nine standard time zones and Canada’s six time zones. Some parts of the USA and Canada do not follow the changes.

Mexico’s border regions share the same daylight saving schedule as the USA, but the rest of Mexico will end DST one week earlier, on Sunday, October 30, 2012.
