LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Sunday marks an end to daylight saving time and may mean an extra hour of sleep for most.

California, along with 47 other states, will “fall back” one hour at 2 a.m. as the state reverts to Pacific Standard Time.

Hawaii and most of Arizona do not observe daylight saving time.

Public safety officials urged residents to use the semi-annual clock changing exercise as an opportunity to change batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, as well as flashlights.

The battery-changing ritual should include clearing dust from slots or sensors, officials said.

Daylight saving time returns in March.
