WASHINGTON — Dream on. Just make it snappier this weekend.

Daylight saving time officially was re-emerging at 2 a.m. local time Sunday.

Standard time returns Nov. 5.

Daylight saving time covers 238 days, or about 65 percent of the year, according to the National Institute of Standards and Technology, which is part of the Commerce Department.
