For many temperate plant species, maximum freezing tolerance is enhanced via acclimation to low but nonfreezing temperatures.
Temperature alone is not enough to develop overall criteria for the edges of the nonfreezing rain transition region and low moisture content drives the warmer edge to higher temperatures.
First described by Henry Piffard in 1881, pernio (chilblains) is an abnormal inflammatory response to moisture and cold.1 Pernio develops in susceptible individuals who are exposed to nonfreezing cold.
