By default, dates returned are in which Time Zone?

Answer Count: 

There is no time component available in dates returned by aWhere forecast/daily observations API, so how to add UTC offset in it? My timezone is Central Standard Time (UTC -5:00), if I subtract the -5 from given forecast/history weather date (which does not have time part in it, so time will 00:00), date will get changed as it does not contain time part in it, would it be correct?
