Daylight saving time begins at midnight on Saturday 21 for the regions South, South East and Centre-West (they include the states of Rio Grande do Sul, Santa Catarina, Paraná, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Espírito Santo, Minas Gerais, Goiás, Mato Grosso, Mato Grosso do Sul and Distrito Federal).
Bahia, in the Northeast, will not implement daylight saving time this year – reversing a trend from the past when it became the only state in the Northeast region to do so.
We’ll have to put the clocks forward (by) an hour. Summer time savings end on 17 February 2013.
