It could be a sticking thermostat or air in the coolant system. How's the coolant level?

Start with the radiator. It is probably just low. Then your thermostat. You can take it out and check it but putting it in a pan of boiling water and see if it opens

I agree with all the above answers. Thermostat is the best place to check if the coolant level is normal. You also may have a huge air bubble in the system. If you have a coolant recovery system, after running for a while, check the level in the coolant collector bag/box.

Most often in this situation, the coolant/antifreeze is down by about half. Top it off and your problem Shld go away.
