1990 944 S2 Running hot at idle, then quickly returning to normal

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 944 S2 Cabrio.; Year: 1990; Body Type: Convertible; Total Mileage: 49000;

Just recently my 944 S2 has been doing something strange, and I would like to get your opinion on this matter. When driving the car the temp gauge reads normal, somewhere between the two white lines. When I have to stop or am in traffic, the gauge goes up to the red then quickly falls back down. It repeats this until I get going again, then it runs normal. It never stays too long in the red, but I know this is not normal.
