A rapidly rising phase of SOI in late autumn is an indication of fewer frosts in the season and the occurrence of the last frost early in the season. In other words, the frost period will not be prolonged late into the season. The reason for this scenario is median to above-median rainfall and cloud cover for a greater number of days resulting in less radiational cooling of the earth's surface in the winter season.

Forecast for Next One to Two Days

The meteorological conditions for frost occurrence are clear skies, inversion of temperature, and wind speed less than 7 kph. These weather conditions are normally associated with high pressure systems during the winter season. If the sky is clear, the atmosphere is comparatively calm during a cold evening, and the weather map on television shows that the area of interest falls well within a high pressure system, frost is expected during the next one to two nights.
