Winter is right around the corner in Oklahoma, which means our hours of sunshine will be getting shorter. Daylight Savings Time will end on Sunday, Nov. 5, so we'll "fall back" an hour. Soon the sun will rise a bit earlier, but the sun will set before most Oklahomans make it home after work.

It's been a sunny and warm fall for Oklahoma, which is unfortunately typical. Oklahoma never gets a real fall with crisp mornings and chilly afternoons where all you need is a light jacket. Oklahoma has had a lot of rain recently, but its still been warm and humid. And now it's looking liked Oklahoma will receive its first bout of winter weather for the season on Halloween!

First signs of winter means less sunshine is around the corner.

After Halloween we'll move right into November, which is technically still a fall holiday, but Oklahomans have carved many turkeys with ice on the ground. And that could be possible again this year. But before we're filling our plates with stuffing, we'll first end Daylight Savings Time on Sunday, Nov. 5.


It has been speculated that 2023 could be the last year for "falling back" in Oklahoma. But in a few weeks, we should go ahead and plan to set our clocks back an hour. When we do, the average sunrise will take place around 7 a.m. and the average sunset will be at 5:30 p.m. I don't know about you, but that sunset time is awfully early to lose daylight.
