Houston Time Now

Houston is the 4th most popular city in the USA and is situated in Texas in the Southern USA. Texas is one of the unique states that has two time zones. El Paso & Hudspeth are counties of Texas and follow MST(Moutain Standard Time) while Houston & other territories of Texas come in a time zone called CST( Central Standard Time). CST is the central standard time zone used in Central and North America.

But from the 1st week of November to March's 2nd week it has a -5 hrs difference from UTC/GMT time as Houston follows DST( Daylight Saving Time) during this time period and clocks are forwarded by an hour.
