Central Time Zone
The Central Time Zone, as its name indicates, covers the central part of the United States, including the entirety of Alabama, Illinois, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, as well as five others, while also covering parts of 11 other states including Texas, Kansas, Kentucky, and others.
The Central Time Zone also applies in parts of Canada and Mexico, as well as various Central American countries and Caribbean Islands. Central Standard Time (CST) is six hours behind Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). Central Daylight Time is used in the summer months during periods of daylight savings and is five hours behind UTC.
Mountain Time Zone
The Mountain TIme Zone (MT) covers large parts of Canada and Mexico, as well as five full states and parts of ten other states. This time zone is observed in the western edge of Texas and applies in two of the state's counties: El Paso County and Hudspeth County. A small part of Culberson County also observes Mountain Time in an unofficial capacity.
El Paso County contains one of Texas' biggest cities, El Paso, and the famous Rio Grande river passes through this area too. Hudspeth County, meanwhile, is a much smaller county of just over 3,000 people. Its largest town is Fort Hancock.
Daylight Savings in Texas
The entirety of the state of Texas does use daylight savings time. This means that the majority of the state passes to CDT during the summer months, being five hours behind UTC, while El Paso County and Hudspeth County on the western tip of Texas utilize MDT during summer, being six hours behind UTC.
