Be aware that some timezones change this weekend, GMT goes back 1 hour @ 01:00 Sunday, dunno about other places.

GMT didn't go back, we're just switching from BSt to GMT.

GMT is constant, and never subject to change. Just the clocks in the EU go back one hour, don't know about other places. And the clocks in the UK and Portugal happen to match with GMT then.

Direct quotes:

When we change our clocks

Daylight Saving Time begins for most of the United States at 2 a.m. on the first Sunday of April. Time reverts to standard time at 2 a.m. on the last Sunday of October. In the U.S., each time zone switches at a different time.

In the European Union, Summer Time begins and ends at 1 am Universal Time (Greenwich Mean Time). It starts the last Sunday in March, and ends the last Sunday in October. In the EU, all time zones change at the same moment.

Some U.S. areas

Daylight Saving Time, for the U.S. and its territories, is NOT observed in Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, most of the Eastern Time Zone portion of the State of Indiana, and the state of Arizona (not the Navajo Indian Reservation, which does observe). Navajo Nation participates in the Daylight Saving Time policy, due to its large size and location in three states.
