This is a list of military time zones as defined in the ACP 121(I) standard. For Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States, and is used by many nations' armed forces. The names are identical to the NATO phonetic alphabet. Going east from the prime meridian at Greenwich, letters 'Alpha' through 'Mike' (skipping 'J', see below) represent the 12 time zones with. PDST = PACIFIC DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME PST = PACIFIC STANDARD TIME EXAMPLE: If your local clock reads 8 PM and you are in the Eastern Daylight Savings Time (EDST) time zone, the UTC/GMTor ZULU time would be 2400 hours. (Note: 2400 hours = 0000 hours). In other words, while the time 0000 always corresponds to midnight local time no matter the global location, 00Z corresponds to midnight in Greenwich ONLY. (In the United States, 00Z can range from 2 pm local time in Hawaii to 7 or 8 pm along the East Coast.). Why does the military call this time 'Zulu time?' You would think that the world could be divided equally into 24 one-hour equals a day. However, due to the International Date Line (middle of Pacific Ocean), there are actually three more zones created and many of the zones are not exactly an hour apart (as the Sun travels).

What is UTC or GMT Time?

Zulu Time To Pacific Time

Weather observations around the world (including surface, radar, and other observations) are always taken with respect to a standard time. By convention, the world's weather communities use a twenty four hour clock, similar to 'military' time based on the 0° longitude meridian, also known as the Greenwich meridian.

Prior to 1972, this time was called Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) but is now referred to as Coordinated Universal Time orUniversal Time Coordinated (UTC). It is a coordinated time scale, maintained by the Bureau International des Poids etMesures (BIPM). It is also known as 'Z time' or 'Zulu Time'.

To obtain your local time here in the United States, you need to subtract a certain number of hours from UTC dependingon how many time zones you are away from Greenwich (England). The table below shows the standard difference from UTC time to local time.

The switch to daylight saving time does not affect UTC. It refers to time on the zero or Greenwich meridian, which is notadjusted to reflect changes either to or from Daylight Saving Time.

However, you need to know what happens during daylight saving time in the United States. In short, the local time is advanced one hour during daylight saving time. As an example, the Eastern Time zone difference from UTC is -4 hours during daylight saving time rather than -5 hours as it is during standard time.
