Update 2/18/21 3:08AM: This work is now complete.
Tomorrow night (2/18/21), starting at 2:00 AM, a small subset of customers in the Berkeley, Oakland, and Emeryville areas will experience a brief service interruption while we perform some maintenance. The expected down time is about 15 minutes while the equipment reboots. The maintenance window will be 4 hours.

Sonic Maintenance Pros,
Thank you for these notices.
Good as they are, they’d be clearer if you called the part of the date that post-midnight, pre-appr. 8 a.m. work will be done within, the “early morning”, not “night”.
When I hear, on a Wed. the 17th, “tomorrow night”, I think of sunset to midnigh (so the LAST few hours of) tomorrow. Not midnight to 8 a.m. Thu. the 18th.
Night can as commonly be from sunset till only MIDNIGHT, as till sunrise, per my understanding of dictionary.com:
Its 1st definition. of morning—which is not interchangeable w. night or confusion results, is:
“1) The first part or period of the day, extending from dawn, or from midnight, to noon.”
And midnight should be the start of a day’s 1st period, since all 3 astronomy def.’s of day there call it a 24-hr. period.
So I suggest—1x only, of course—you say “2 to 6 a.m.tomorrow MORNING” in the above work’s advance notice—w/o the CAPS, perhaps.
