    Sure, there's still snow on the ground, but it's time to spring forward anyway! Daylight Saving Time begins this weekend.

    And if you're a night owl planning on taking Metro, you need to know what that means for you. Clocks will move forward one hour at 2 a.m. EST on Sunday, and as soon as that happens, it will become 3 a.m. EDT -- which means Metrorail will close.

    If you're nervous about making sure you can get that last train, check WMATA's "last train" schedules online and subtract one hour. The schedules are also posted at each rail station -- just remember to subtract that hour.

    The last trains of the evening will pass through stations between 1 and 2 a.m. EST.

    Once you can get through this weekend, you won't have to worry about this confusion again until the fall.
