The Date header shows local time followed by an offset from UTC, or
sometimes a 3 letter abbreviation of the timezone name. This is the
same as what the Windows control panel shows. The TZ environment
variable shows the 3 letter abbreviation for the local timezone
followed by an offset to get _to_ GMT, which is backwards from how
most people think of timezones.
