California residents can get their first glimpse of daylight from the Golden State as it begins to shift northward from the Pacific Ocean on Thursday.
Daylight saving time, which began Friday in most parts of the state, will begin in the Los Angeles area on Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.
California’s longest-running daylight saving time has been in effect since 1982.
It was originally extended to June 26 and ended March 24.
The state’s longest daylight saving day is May 15.
California has been the state of last resort for the Pacific Northwest since the 1940s.
The region has seen the biggest annual drop in daylight hours in the nation since 2008, with the number of daylight hours falling to 784, according a report by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
California will begin daylight saving at 8 a.m.
A total of 7.7 million people in the state are expected to use public transportation this year, up from 7.1 million in 2015.
About 60 percent of residents will be able to make plans for daylight saving on the state’s public transportation website.
