Icons wp10

I have a Lumia 640 with wp10 on it. On the lock screen I am getting different icons showing up. There is an exclamation mark and what looks like a small icon of the sun. These are at the bottom of the screen along side the email icons. Only on the lock screen and not the start screen. What are they for?

Go to Settings > Personalization > Lock Screen > Choose Apps to show quick status > you cab toggle through them and see what each is...

I agree with xandros9, it does sound like an alert from Weather.
