British Summer Time starts today
The start of British Summer Time means having to put all your clocks forward by one hour today. Changing the clocks by an hour in the UK has taken place since 1916, when it was first suggested by William Willett, a London builder.

Britain basks as summer time begins
And yesterday's fine weather came on the eve of British Summer Time, with the clocks having gone forward an hour today. The flowers of the magnolia tree have symbolised late spring's warmer weather for centuries. The tree is one of nature's survivors, ...

Welcome to the start of British Summer Time
Any fog this morning will seem to linger for longer than yesterday due to the start of British Summer Time and clocks going forward an hour overnight. Today, Sunday, will feel warm once any mist and fog has lifted; always more cloud in the extreme east ...

Can I drive in CA legally at 17 with a British driving license? by Q: Hey guys im getting my British driving license pretty soon. During the summer time i spend a long time in CA and I was wondering if i could drive freely in CA with my British license. If so would there be any restrictions such as I am not allowed to carry passengers? Also would I need to purchase insurance so I can drive any car? thanks.

A: no you need a us temp license

How comes hasn't there been a British summer 2011? by Q: i just want a quick explanation telling me why its cold, i know why it rains allot, but why is it so cold, but the weather should be peaking 30degrees at times at this time of year but we're bearly seen 20

A: because our weather is just annoying... it was pouring down an hour ago now its stopped completely just like that.. we are just unlucky.. but it always gives us something to talk about on the plus side :)

I have a turkey with defrosting instructions saying a cool room for 48 hrs ? by mystichelper7 Q: My question is should I leave it out any longer just to be extra safe I plan to cook it Christmas morning at 9am British Summer Time

A: Just to be safe I would put the turkey in the refrigerator to defrost. You run the risk of salmonella poisoning by letting it defrost to room temperatue. If it is not fully defrosted on Christmas Morning I would put it in the sink and run cold water over it until you can pry its legs apart and take the giblets out that are usually packed inside. Then rinse the cavity and then you are ready to put the stuffing in.... I like mine with apple and sausage meat. roast for 20 minutes a pound at 325 degrees until done.

I am getting so confused.... I need help with time zones? by Q: Ok, Google is not helping at all here. It's just making me more confused. If it were say, 3 PM in CST, in the United States, then what time would it be in BST (Which, I'm assuming by Google, means British Summer Time?). I thought just say, using the online world clock would help, but I was not sure of whether cities like London or Birmingham were under the affect of this, or whether they were even in that time zone. 0.o If you couldn't tell, all of the European countries confuse me. xD

A: I have added a source for a world time zone map that should help to visualize the situation Time in the British Isles is 6 hours earlier than is the USA's Central Time Zone. If it's 3 PM in Chicago, or Kansas City or Dallas, then its 9 PM in London, Birmingham, Dublin or Glasgow. Be careful about "CST" and "BST." CST means that the Central Time Zone is NOT on daylight savings time. CST is Central Standard Time; Central Daylight Time is CDT. Most countries (US States) go to daylight savings at about the same time each year. The situation can be confusing in the case of Arizona which does not go to daylight savings. So when the rest of the USA adds an hour in the spring and subtracts an hour in the fall, Arizonians don't touch their clocks. What happens in that they go from Mountain Time Zone to the Pacific Time Zone. You could also say that when Denver, Cheyenne and Boise go to MDT, Arizona stays at MST. The map will help explain this.

time zone question/pottermore? by Q: what is BST (british summer time) compared to EDT (eastern daylight time)?? i'm doing 'pottermore' and for the next clue it's between 9am and 1pm BST.. so what time is that here in connecticut (EDT) ? sorry! but nevermind, i figured it out. :)

A: we do not have BST (british summer time) or connecticut (EDT) here in Australia where you asked this try asking in travel UK or USA

A: 8:00

BST to CST time conversion? by Q: -Can anyone tell me what 2.00 pm BST(British Summer Time) is when converted to CST(Central Standard Time)? -How many hours should I add/subtract from CST to get BST?

A: http://www.timezoneconverter.com/cgi-bin/tzc.tzc says BST is -6 hours to CDT, -7 hours to CST. You add hours to CST to get to BST, not subtract (areas farther east are ahead in clock time).

convert 1:30pm BST, to New Zealand time? by Q: on google, i searched for a time converter website, but it has country names, not BST. BST stands for British summer time, i think. please help, i want to know so i can tell when pottermore will start. thx

A: Auckland, New Zealand longitude 174 degree 45 min East BST longitude 0 degree. Difference in time= 175/15 = 11 1/2 hours Answer : New Zealand is 1.00 am the following morning (Ahead in time)

Time Zone Conversions Please? by Magic Chicken Q: Can anyone convert these times for me? Take into account that England is now in british summer time 3pm EST to London/England Time

A: British Summer Time is 6 hours ahead, so it is 9pm in London. As soon as the Eastern zone of the US goes on to daylight saving time the difference will be 5 hours.

What angle should the gnomon on a wall-mounted sundial be? by Vernon H Q: My wall faces due south so is ideal for a sun dial. As I want it mainly in summer I will have the the bottom hour as 1PM for British Summer time (sun due south). I live at 51 degrees but is that taken from the level horizontal an 51 degrees up for the gnomon angle, or 51 degrees down, or is it taken fron the upright vertical, again up or down?

A: To quote the website noted below... Wall mounted sundials require a south facing wall and will only be truly accurate if they have been specifically designed for the aspect they are used on. But to answer your question... I would assume that you would look at your watch and move the gnomon until it reads the same time.

GMT. Does the hour change for winter and summer in other countries? by helen Q: I told everyone i worked with that when i lived in spain 20yrs ago the hour changed as it does in this country to A summertime time. Did it? Does it? Or im i just getting confused about it as i had to change the times i had to phone home to G.B. What about holland, do they have the hour change from british wintertime to british summer time? Bit confused please let me no if you no>

A: most of Europe changes; Iceland does not (last I knew). Most of the US and Canada change; parts do not (especially not in the southwest). Nations in the tropics generally don't - there's no reason to.

A: It would be noon in Connecticut. You are correct that Bridgeport is EST

What is the layman term for the time zone right now in the UK? by okthen79 Q: Do people in the UK refer to the time zone as BST, like for example, would you say it is 11:00 AM BST or would you say it is 11:00 AM British Summer Time or 11:00 AM summer time? I am just curious how they refer to it? Also, when daylight savings time is not in effect, do people in the UK refer to the time zone as GMT? any help is appreciated Katie gave a good answer, the rest of you really need to read questions before you answer.

A: Like the others said. Sometimes we use BST, not British Summer Time. For example, in a few weeks, the clocks change again. So to distinguish times at 1am (ie TV programmes) they'll state whether it's GMT or BST

When does British Summer start? (2011)? by Q: When does British summer start? Because Google says it starts on June 21st, but my calender says "Sunday 27th March 2011 - British Summer time starts. Huh?

A: It depends on what you mean by summer. In the northern hemisphere the first day of summer is technically June 21.. But summer could also mean "summer vacation" which would be when ever school lets out.

British Summer time.? by Q: Why do our clocks go forward around the vernal equinox, but go back a month after the autuminal equinox. So, why do we not put the clocks forward in late Feb, 2 months after the shortest day. 4 moths of dark night is enough !!, why do we go for 5 months ? Cannot wait until the clock go forward and it stays light until 8pm

A: The same reason people still use imperial measurements like ounces and feet. We are very inconsistent.

What U.S. time is 1945 BST (British Summer Time)? by Raia Q: Does anybody know?

A: BST is GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) + 1 hour during the summer months. Now you want to know what the time is in the U.S. when it is 19:45 (7:45 PM) BST? There are four time zones in the contiguous U.S., so you need to be a tad more specific. In the Eastern States, it would be 2:45 PM EDT. Subtract one hour for each of the other three zones (CDT, MDT, PDT).

what is 12:00-14:00 BST(British Summer Time) in PST(Pacific Standard Time)? by Evan Q:

A: It depends on your mobile. Some will change automatically and many others won't. It will be best to manually set your mobile the hour early and if it is automatic, then you wake up an hour early. It is best not to assume your mobile when automatically change your time, especially if you need to be at work by 6am.

A: Loads of countries do it - here's a list http://webexhibits.org/daylightsaving/g.html

why do we have british summer time? by antonykaruka Q: it is in britain we change the time one hour forward?

A: It goes back to the war effort and the conservation of energy. Most countries choose to have a "Daylight Savings Time" (as we call it here in the states). Since people alter their schedules so that the work is done while the sun is up (an hour's difference), less energy is used. This was initiated during, at least in the states, during the war.

Is your baby in british summer time mode yet? by Faiths mummy & Grace on board!

What did we do first for British Summer Time? by GeeGee Q: When BST first started back in the early 1900's.. Did we put the clocks forward first, or did it start in October and they went back first?

A: The clocks must have gone forward first because British Summer Time(BST) is 1 hour ahead of Grenwich Mean Time (GMT). So BST is GMT+1. Britain was just on GMT before BST started. If time had gone back first we would alternate between GMT and GMT minus one (GMT -1). So the very fact that we in the UK alternate between GMT and GMT+1 means that we must have gone forward first.

WHAT is the POINT of British Summer Time? by Hitesh_M Q: Why do we have to change our clocks to an hours difference? Why not keep track of the original time of the Earths' rotation, by simply having all clocks and watches, especially Big Ben as well as satellites to go according to Atomic Time? I mean the Earth does not quickly rotate a degree in hour, clockwise/anti-clockwise, does it (I bet not)? So why is it necessary to increase an hour on our watches before summer, if we are going to change it back after summer.

A: Where I live, if there were no Summer Time, it would be broad daylight at 4 a.m. in June and July and dark by 8.30 p.m. Far better for it to become light at 5 a.m. and dark at 9.30 p.m. After all, for every person up and about at 4 a.m. there must be 100 people up and about at 8.30 p.m. Why not let the majority benefit from the extra daylight?

British Summer Time to Eastern Standard Time difference? by Q: what is the time difference between British Summer Time to Eastern Standard Time?

A: 5 hrs. between BST and EDST

A: I'm not sure what time it starts for you but its 5:30 am here PST so that means in 2 and a half hours or so the new one will post!! Yeah I'm lame and have been up all night in excitement for it.
