Today the weather will change in the United States

In the United States, the weather usually changes twice a year. It is almost always held on the second Sunday in March, when daylight saving begins, and on the first Sunday in November, when it ends.

The last time the time was changed was on November 5, last year, when the clock was turned back one hour. Meanwhile, the next change is on Sunday, March 10, to start the summer.

Thanks to the new technological era, most users don’t have to worry about making the change manually. This is because electronic devices, such as smartphones, automatically make the change to 2:00 am

Where in the United States does the weather change?

In case you didn’t know, the Uniform Time Act of 1966 allowed states to exempt themselves from observing daylight saving time. This is the reason why, in some territories of the United States, there is no change in weather.

So they never set their clocks forward or back, in the state of Hawaii and most of Arizona, because they don’t have daylight saving time.

Likewise, other territories such as Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, and American Samoa maintain standard time throughout the year.

If we talk about Arizona, we must specify that daylight saving time has been used in that state since 1918, but it was decided not to use it in 1968.

The truth is that, although this state maintains standard time, the Navajo Nation, in the northeast of the state, observes daylight saving time.

It so happened that, in March 2022, the United States Senate approved a measure that would make daylight saving time permanent throughout the country.

This is the bipartisan “Sunshine Protection Act” bill, which was also approved unanimously. It aims to ensure that Americans no longer change their watches twice a year.

However, the proposal was not approved by the House of Representatives and did not reach President Joe Biden to be signed into law.
