That symbol means there's a weather alert for your area. It may be a flood, freeze, or some other kind of warning. You'll see the same symbol on the Start tile and in the app.


That means there would be flood or heavy rain on your area

    You may want to expound a little more. E.g. the symbol can mean much more than just flood or heavy rain. – RareNCool Jan 11 '16 at 17:59
