NEW YORK CITY — It may be snowing in the city Friday, but some more signs of spring are just around the corner.

Daylight-Saving Time starts this Sunday, when New Yorkers "spring forward" to get an extra hour of light at the end of the day. Clocks will be set ahead by one hour starting at 2 a.m. Sunday, March 10.

Clock-watchers will lose an hour of slumber, but get to enjoy the sun setting at 6:57 p.m.

Temperatures will also be pleasantly mild over the weekend, with mostly sunny skies and a high of 50 degrees on Saturday, according to AccuWeather. Sunday will also reach 50 degrees, with partly cloudy skies.

Daylight-saving time ends Sun., Nov. 3, when we turn the clocks back and get an extra hour of sleep.
