About USA Time Zones – View a map of USA Time Zones

Hi,

Just thought I would drop a little geography related knowledge today concerning the time zones used in the USA. As dull as it may sounds I do get quite a few messages asking for info on USA Time Zones and also asking for a Map of USA Time Zones. Well, for all you time zone herds out there I have put together a post that should help;

United States time zones


Standard time zones in the United States are currently defined at the federal level by law 15 U.S.C. The federal law also establishes the transition dates and times at which daylight saving time occurs, if observed. It is ultimately the authority of the Secretary of Transportation, in coordination with the states, to determine which regions will observe which of the standard time zones and if they will observe daylight saving time.

As of August 9, 2007, the standard time zones are defined in terms of hourly offsets from UTC.[1] Prior to this they were based upon the mean solar time at several meridians 15° apart west of Greenwich (GMT).

Only the full time zone names listed below are official; abbreviations are by common use conventions.
.
The United States uses nine standard time zones. From east to west they are;
Atlantic Standard Time (AST)
Eastern Standard Time (EST)
Central Standard Time (CST)
Mountain Standard Time (MST)
Pacific Standard Time (PST)
Alaskan Standard Time (AKST)
Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time (HST), Samoa standard time (UTC−11)
Chamorro Standard Time (UTC+10).
Zones used in the contiguous U.S.
From east to west, the times zones of the contiguous United States are:

Eastern standard time zone: (EST; UTC−05; Zone R), which comprises roughly the states on the Atlantic coast and the eastern two thirds of the Ohio Valley.

Central standard time zone: (CST; UTC−06; Zone S), which comprises roughly the Gulf Coast, Mississippi Valley, and Great Plains.

Mountain standard time zone: (MST; UTC−07; Zone T), which comprises roughly the states that include the Rocky Mountains.

Pacific standard time zone: (PST; UTC−08; Zone U), which comprises roughly the states on the Pacific coast, plus Nevada.
