What Time is It in Austin Tx?

Everything’s big in Texas, so you might think that they have their own time zone. Actually, they have two. The vast majority of Texas, including Austin, is part of the U.S. Central Standard Time Zone (CST). However, a very small portion in the western most part of the state is in the Mountain Standard Time Zone or MST. That said, for most of Texas, if you live on the east coast and are part of the Eastern Standard Time Zone (EST), like New York, a city like Austin, would be one hour behind you. So if it’s noon in New York, it’s 11:00 in the morning in Texas. If you live in Mountain Standard Time (MST) like Colorado, Texas would be one hour ahead of you. And finally, if you live on the west coast, like California, Texas would be two whole hours ahead of you. A helpful online tool to keep track of exactly what time it is where is
