When local daylight time is about to reach
Sunday, 27 October 2019, 03:00:00 clocks are turned backward 1 hour to
Sunday, 27 October 2019, 02:00:00 local standard time instead.
Sunrise and sunset will be about 1 hour earlier on 27 Oct 2019 than the day before. There will be more light in the morning. https://www.timeanddate.com/time/change/spain/madrid It is likely that Spain, and other EU countries that do not opt out, will stop using daylight savings time in 2021 as per an EU directive awaiting final approval. https://www.citizensadvice.org.es/daylight-savings-time-abolished-per-2021/
