Daylight savings time ends in Nevada on Sunday, Nov. 7.
At 2 a.m. that day, the state will go back to standard time as the clock “falls back” an hour.
For classified state workers working at night, that will actually result in an extra hour on the clock that can be taken as comp-time or overtime. That would include employees such as highway patrol troopers and correctional officers, among others.
The annual shift — an hour forward in the spring and an hour back in the fall — was adopted in the United States in1918. The goal was to account for the seasonal shift in daylight hours.
Arizona and Hawaii are the exceptions, staying on standard time year long because, at their latitudes, daylight hours don’t shift as much as the seasons change as they do at higher latitudes.
