Arab Weather - Daylight saving time begins in the Kingdom as of midnight "Thursday / Friday" corresponding to the 26th of this March, by advancing the clock at 60 minutes.
The cabinet had decided earlier to adopt the principle of working with the summer time by advancing the time of 60 minutes, starting at midnight on the last Thursday of March of each year.
It is changing the official time in a country or province. This is to reset the official hours at the beginning of the spring, when the clock is advanced by sixty minutes. As for the return to normal time, i.e. winter time, it takes place in the autumn season.
The goal of increasing an hour to the official time is to increase the official working hours and other public events, to take advantage of the daylight hours, which gradually increase from the beginning of spring until the height of summer and reach 14 hours during the summer, while the length of the night reaches approximately 10 hours, meaning that the difference between the number of hours Day and night are about 4 hours, which is for quite some time.
Also, the importance of implementing daylight saving time in Jordan in particular and in other countries in general, especially non-oil-producing countries, is due to the fact that it has great economic benefits. In order for factories, schools and government departments to benefit from the sunrise hours, so it is more effective to take advantage of these hours so that the time is advanced at least one hour, and this means the start of work an hour before the winter time.
The daylight saving time work also leads to the end of work in most factories and other work centers before sunset, given that it will be absent by half past seven in the evening.
It also makes the citizen go to sleep early and not stay up for a long time, thus not using lighting and electrical appliances for a long time during the night.
