So be sure and move your clocks ahead one hour. This is a departure from the former Daylight Savings Time observance of the first Sunday of April and the last Sunday of October. The extension was set by the Energy Policy Act of 2005, to conserve energy.

WDAY Meteorologist Daryl Ritchison said that the last system resulted in about 5 inches of new snow in the F-M area, bringing the total accumulation for the winter to approximately 19 inches.
