State emergency officials urge Wisconsinites to prepare for "Falling Back"

MADISON,WI (WTAQ) - Don't forget to fall back tonight. 

Daylight Savings Time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday, and you're reminded to turn your clocks back one hour before going to bed. 

Those out partying will have an extra hour to revel, but most of us will be enjoying an extra hour of sleep. 

While you're fiddling with your clocks, Wisconsin Emergency Management says it's also a good time to check the batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors -- and replace them if necessary. 

Officials also say it's a good time to put together a basic home emergency kit if you don't have one. They suggest having a battery-powered radio, flashlights, and a first aid kit -- plus enough food and water to survive for three days. 

November could also bring us more snow, and Wisconsin Emergency Management encourages folks to have a winter car kit in their vehicles. But you won't have to worry about getting stuck for awhile. 

Forecasters say daytime highs will be well above freezing in the 40's and 50's at least until late next week. 

There's a slight chance of rain and snow showers in the forecast Saturday, and there's a chance of light snow on Wednesday.
