I think both of these are to establish that the time of year (and island location) allow for using sunrise and sunset to get approximate locations. It being a snowy night when abducted implies winter (so you're not around the equinoxes where it might make things more difficult), while the island being cool implies that you're away from the equator (maybe even outside the tropics), again allowing for the timing of sunrise and sunset in order to establish approximate location.
