GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

If you feel tired this weekend, just blame it on the clock.

Daylight saving time returns this weekend, so don't forget to set your clock forward an hour before turning in Saturday night.

Clocks shift back to daylight saving time at 2 a.m. Sunday, local time, stealing an hour of sleep from most people Saturday night - except in Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands, which do not observe daylight saving time.

Fire safety officials said this also is a good time to change the batteries in your smoke detectors.

Daylight saving time ends Nov. 3.

From 1966 to 2006, most of the U.S. observed daylight saving time starting the first Sunday in April to the last Sunday of October, which made for darker Halloween evenings.
