I believe that is warning you that frost may be forming and to look out for icy roads.

On my cars this warning seems to come on around 36 degrees Fahrenheit.

Ok Thanks, that sounds logical.


Your owners manual may have more information as well.


No there's nothing in our manual about that one

If you look online you can find explanations for most symbols. Some do vary with the manufacturers.

Found it in the manual under “Features of your Vehicle -> Instrument Cluster” In the 2016 Accent manual it’s on page 4- 43. “Icy road warning light (if equipped) This warning light is to warn the driver the road may be icy when: • Ignition ON • Temperature range: approximately below 39. 2°F (4°C). The warning light will blink for 10 seconds and then illuminate. Also the warning chime will sound”
