PHILADELPHIA (AP/CBS) — Time isn’t on your side this weekend. After the Philadelphia region enjoyed spring-like weather Saturday afternoon, it’s time to spring forward for daylight saving time.

The shift from standard to daylight saving time comes at 2 a.m. local time Sunday across most of the United States. Consider setting clocks an hour ahead before bed Saturday night.
