LOL @ responses.

It means it's cold out and to be careful. I agree with e60holic, everytime that chime went off my heart skipped a beat wondering what was wrong now.

Actually BMW equipped the E9x generation cars with Geiger counters and it means the car is detecting radio-active snow

Climate change malfunction. See your nearest EPA office as soon as possible to stop global warning.
