It means the outside temperature is below about 3c so there's a danger of ice.

Normally get a ping, as opposed to a pong, when it comes on initially too.

In American English that's 37 degrees. Reminds you to watch for black ice and falling temperatures. Countryman makes a bloop-bong sound not a elevator bing like the supercharged earlier versions.
