Central Time Zone Edit

The Central Time Zone (CST) observes standard time by subtracting six hours from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) during standard time (UTC-6) and five hours during daylight saving time (UTC-5).

  • standard time: Central Standard Time (CST)
  • daylight saving: Central Daylight Time (CDT)

The zone is one hour ahead of the Mountain Time Zone and one hour behind the Eastern Time Zone.

In the United States, the time zone includes the entire area of the states of Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin; and portions of Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Tennessee, and Texas. Phenix City, Alabama and the surrounding countryside, while officially in Central Time, observe Eastern Time unofficially because of close ties to Columbus, Georgia.

In Canada, this time zone includes all of Manitoba, nearly all of Saskatchewan, a slice of western Ontario, and most of Kivalliq Region, of Nunavut.
