I can tell you that the snowflake is displayed anytime the outside
temperature is between -5 C and +5 C.  In Farenheit, I believe that's
between 23 and 41 F.

The purpose of the snowflake is to warn you that it's close to the freezing
point, so to be careful of road conditions, like black ice, especially on
places like bridges, that freeze first

I guess below -5 C, it should be obvious that it's Winter outside, so they
don't need to bother you with the snowflake anymore.  I can tell you that
since it's been about -25 C (-13 F) for the past week here, I haven't seen
the snowflake for a while.  I'm looking forward to seeing it again :-)

p.s. In case you didn't know, you can flip your display from
Imperial/Metric, by pressing the RECIRC and TEMP + buttons at the same time.
