From Time zone update for the Kingdom of Morocco – Microsoft Daylight Saving Time & Time Zone Blog:
Quote

Microsoft is aware of the upcoming time zone change for the Kingdom of Morocco. Morocco will remain permanently on UTC+01:00, instead of the previous plan of returning to UTC+00:00 on October 28, 2018.

Our official policy statement can be found at http://microsoft.com/time.

Though we plan to release a data update, there is insufficient lead time before this change goes into effect. Therefore, we are offering the following interim guidance as a temporary workaround until such an update can be properly created, tested, distributed, and installed.


Interim Guidance:

Until an update is made available, we recommend our customers temporarily switch to time zone “(UTC+01:00) West central Africa” as soon as possible. Selecting this time zone will reflect the correct current local time, but will not be correct for past events that occurred when Morocco was using UTC+00:00.  Therefore, we recommend returning to “(UTC+01:00) Casablanca” after the aforementioned update is applied.

I've mentioned m3Sweatt before in this thread on Daylight Saving Time.  Since we turn our clocks back here tonight, I thought it was appropriate that m3Sweatt posted his thoughts about DST.  Since it is a very long collection of Tweets, I used "Spooler" to put the thread together.  If you're interested in reading it, click the link below and allow a few seconds for the thread to be collected in a "blog-type" collection:

A thread by M3 Sweatt

Great question, raised again in the @seattletimes article by @frankkummer on the point of Daylight Saving Time. It’s the economics and politics

Edit Note:  mm3Sweatt saw my Tweet using the Spooler and went ahead and posted it as a blog post here:  Your questions: It’s time to “Fall Back” again in North America. What’s the point of DST? – Satisfy Me

For the US is starts on March 10, 2019 so 2 weeks.

This is the easier change. I have candles at every window and need to reset 14 timers as well as all the clocks.

DST is running now in US.  You didn't mention it.  :)

Two more weeks for Europe (31.3. and not 24.3. as I thought). But the forum's clock shows the local time one hour ahead from now.

I'm still trying to adjust to the time change.  My system is definitely not adapting this to the time change.
