The warnings are called SiteNotice and are sent out when Google sees a significant increase in the number of crawl errors on a site. A crawl error can be when GoogleBot has issues access web pages. Sometimes this may be intentionally done by the Webmaster, but Google thinks it is a good idea to warn the webmaster anyway.
