Time Zones Incorrect

My time zone is set to UTC -5, what it should be. But the time is 1 hour behind. The current time is 11:20 AM, and to schedule a post for 11:30, I would need to schedule it at 10:30 instead.

This may have something to do with Daylight Savings Time, but still the time is incorrect.

Assuming you are in the U.S. Eastern timezone, then your current timezone is actually UTC -4 (EDT), not UTC-5 (EST).

Instead of changing the UTC offsets every six months, you can specify a real timezone (such as America/New York) and DST will be handled for you.

There are long-standing feature requests for making this — #10324.
