USA Time Zones

Time Zones in the United States of America

The continental United States (the 48 contiguous states) is divided into 4 time zones:

Current Time in the United States

Alaska and Hawaii have their own time zones: Alaska Standard Time ( AKST ) and Hawaii Standard Time ( HST ) respectively.

Daylight Saving Time begins for most of the United States at 2 a.m. on the second Sunday of March. Time reverts to standard time at 2 a.m. on the first Sunday of November.

Daylight Saving Time, for the U.S. and its territories, is NOT observed in Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and the state of Arizona (not the Navajo Indian Reservation, which does observe). Navajo Nation participates in the Daylight Saving Time policy, due to its large size and location in three states.
