Temperature sensor issues?

Friday on the way home from work my check engine light popped on and the temp gauge was blinking low. It would continue for a moment and then return to a normal reading. After a moment the light would turn off. This only happened right after I made a turn and was traveling above 80 miles per hour indicated.

Well, today on the way to work it happened even in a straight line. It seemed to be indicating running cooler than normal as well and would drop temp as I increased speed. Over very large bumps (at speed) the CEL would pop on and the temp gauge would flash low, repeating back and forth for a few minutes to reading a temp and then dropping back to flashing. After a few minutes straight with no disturbance it will turn off the light.

I've searched a bit and found similar instances but with no resolution. The dealers are closed on Mondays here. Any ideas?

I've checked oil and coolant and everything seems ok. I tooled around on Saturday and couldn't get the problem to replicate, but I never went over 60 miles an hour. It did seem to be indicating it was running cool, though. There's no way it's running too cold; it was 103 out here on Saturday.

Help. :(

I honestly can't provide a decent help here. I just wanted to make myself feel like I didn't waste time reading this.
