How to change time in hours on HighChart xAxis from Military to Standard time?

http://jsfiddle.net/leongaban/gbqvv0y9/

I've tried to edit the

dateTimeLabelFormats
key to have the chart use the much more readable Standard time, however no results...

enter image description here

$(function () {
$('#container').highcharts({
chart: {
type: 'spline'
},
title: {
text: 'Wind speed during two days'
},
subtitle: {
text: 'May 31 and and June 1, 2015 at two locations in Vik i Sogn, Norway'
},
xAxis:[{
dateTimeLabelFormats: {
hour: '%H:%M'
},
type: 'datetime',
labels: {
overflow: 'justify'
}
}],
yAxis: {
title: {
text: 'Wind speed (m/s)'
},

Answer

Change hour: '%H:%M' to hour: '%I:%M %P'. Here is the updated fiddle.
