Daylight Saving Change in Morocco ~ Check Your Watch Saturday Morning!

With the end of Ramadan comes the change back to daylight saving, which was suspended during Ramadan.  Clocks should be advanced by one hour at 2am (02:00) local time to 3am (03:00) on Saturday morning 

If you are travelling, it is a good idea to make certain you have the correct departure times.

DST is expected to end again at 3am (03:00) on Sunday, September 29, 2013, when clocks will be turned back one hour to standard time.

The interruption in the daylight saving schedule was designed to shorten evenings, making it easier for Muslims to observe the Ramadan fast during hours of daylight. This is commonly practiced in several other countries as well. In 2012, Morocco suspended DST for the first time.
