You have not mentioned whether or not she is spayed. If not then her behavior would be consistent with a cat in heat

If she is spayed then it could well be a that a new cat has moved into the area and she can smell them and is wanting to defend her territory. If this is the case there is not much you can do apart from trying to distract her from the outside by making the inside stimulating for her

Cats have many different meows which they use for different situations. I have a page about some of the possibilities here

Hope I have been able to give you some ideas to what the possible cause is.
