Pacific Time Zone / ET ~ USA & Canada
Pacific Time Zone runs down the Pacific Coast of Canada and the United States of America. It is sometimes referred to as Pacific Coast Time or West Coast Time.
It includes the cities of Seattle WA, San Francisco CA, Los Angeles CA, San Diego CA & Las Vegas NV
When does Pacific Time change to Daylight Saving Time?
In most states in the USA and in most provinces in Canada, Daylight-Saving Time (DST) is observed. During DST PT or PDT is 7 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT-7).
After the Summer months Pacific Time is shifted back by 1 hour to US Pacific Standard Time (PST) or (GMT-8).
The schedule for the states of the United States that adopt daylight saving time are:
2 a.m. on the Second Sunday in March to
Cities with PST -
California state normally uses PST, as we are in April it uses (DST - Horário de Verão) so you slow their "clock'' (atrasa a hora) by one hour what means the time shown in http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/time-zone/usa/usa-cities-time.htm
Idaho is partly within that time zone, Nevada, Oregon, too. Washington state is totally within PST (it is in fact, DST like CA, as said above).
In short, all cities in CA; most of OR, NV, WA and some in ID are within PST, you can see clearly from the picture here: http://www.time.gov/images/US_time_zones.gif
(please click on the pic and enlarge it, okay?)
To a list of Oregon cities with PST. (The clock is set to -7, so you know that with DST its time is one hour behind of
that displayed into the computer. You can do that to the other states, hope it helps.)
