Pacific Time Zone Edit
The Pacific Time Zone observes standard time by subtracting eight hours from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC-8). During Daylight Saving Time, its time offset is UTC-7.
- standard time: Pacific Standard Time (PST)
- daylight saving: Pacific Daylight Time (PDT)
The zone is one hour ahead of the Alaska Time Zone and one hour behind the Mountain Time Zone.
In the United States, the states of Washington and California are located entirely within the Pacific Time Zone. Nearly all of Nevada, except for the town of West Wendover, Nevada is on Pacific Time, although certain small towns near the Idaho border, such as Jackpot, Nevada, observe Mountain Standard Time on an unofficial basis. Additionally, the northern part of Idaho (the Idaho Panhandle) and all of Oregon except for the greater part of Malheur County, Oregon are also in the zone.
In Canada, it includes almost all of the province of British Columbia, except for the Highway 95 corridor and portions around Fort St. John, all of the Yukon Territory and Tungsten, Northwest Territories.
