Time regions in wrong timezone

I’m trying to add time regions to highlight business hours in a graph but for some reason they are not shown properly in the graph.
I can only assume they are being displayed as if they were in a different time region than my Grafana is running.

Important note: Grafana runs in a Kubernetes cluster, the K8s timezone is UTC but me and my users are all in the EDT timezone.

Here is an example:
It’s currently 7:38 AM, Tuesday
I configured time regions from Monday to Friday, from 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM

Problem: Grafana shows me today’s time region starting 3:30 AM EDT (7:30 UTC).

I guess my question is: Is there a way to specify Grafana to display my time regions based on the user’s timezone instead of the server’s timezone?

If not, I believe it would be a useful feature.

Completely agree, for real-world cases using UTC without allowance for timezone is not useful. Particularly with daylight saving changes, where the offset isn’t even consistent.
