Daylight saving time ends Sunday morning on the mainland.

At 2 a.m. on the first Sunday in November in the various local times, clocks will “fall” back one hour (counteracting the beginning of daylight savings time during which clocks “spring” forward on the second Sunday in March).

That change will take place in every state except in Arizona, most of which, like Hawai`i, does not embrace the time-shift.

But it does have implications for telephone calls made to the mainland.

The change will mean that the East Coast of the US will become five hours ahead of Hawaii time instead of six, with the West Coast moving to just two hours ahead.
