East coasters have already survived four nor'easters at this point, but according to weather app, Dark Sky, the worst of times is just ahead.

Much like the 2004 less-than-accurate and not-really-good disaster movie, The Day After Tomorrow, Dark Sky predicts that the temperature on March 24th will plunge sharply to near a hundred degrees below zero. Sounds bad!
And not just in northeast, which has already been battered by storms. Looks like the southwest is going to get their share of below Arctic temperatures as well.

Some places will also apparently experience a bit of weather whiplash as the temperatures soar to intense levels of heat next Tuesday. The future is looking more terrifying all the time.

Some have noticed the correlation between the date of Saturday's supposed deep freeze and the upcoming March For Our Lives.
This coming Saturday is @AMarch4OurLives, a national protest against the epidemic of mass shootings and gun violence in the United States.

Now obviously, this is all just a glitch in Dark Sky's algorithm and won't be the actual weather. But on the off-chance that the end of the world is nigh, you might want to grab with an extra coat or seven on Saturday.
We've reached out to Dark Sky about what is causing this jarring forecast and will update the story if we learn more.
