There are plenty of questions that could run through your head tonight: Did I turn the stove off? What does the dog do when I’m at work all day? Do clocks go forward tonight?

 

Although you’re the only one who can answer the first and the likely answer to the second is sleep, we can help you with that last one. After all, the last thing you want to do is wake up late for that brunch with friends you have on your calendar for tomorrow morning. Or, potentially worse, wake up not knowing whether you’re late or on time or, in fact, what the time really is at all. Admit it, you’ve been there before. We know we have.

 

Don’t think for one second you should have been able to remember. The “spring forward, fall back” saying doesn’t give us much to work with beyond the fact that the clocks will change sometime in spring, which is frustratingly vague.

So, do clocks go forward tonight?

Do clocks go forward tonight? Well, yes, but it sort of depends. Is tonight daylight savings time? Yes, absolutely. The clocks will switch over during the night between Saturday, March 10 (today) and Sunday, March 11. So make sure you plan for that brunch accordingly. Might we suggest a quick, paranoid check of all your clocks. Be sure you know which ones are going to change automatically, like your cell phone and your laptop, and which ones are not. We’re looking at you if you check the time on the microwave as you pour yourself the first cup of coffee of the day.

What time do clocks go forward tonight?

Ideally you’ll be asleep, catching some much-needed rest, but if you’re a night owl, you might see your clocks on digital devices make the hop forward at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday, March 11.

But do us a favor and promise us one thing: If you, in fact, late for that brunch date you set up two weeks ago, say you’re sorry by buying the first round of mimosas.
