Engine Over Cooling

Its now 4 C (40 F) outside up here in the Great White North. I noticed
my temp guage is going up to the first slash after the blue mark. I swear
it always sits at the half way mark in summer or winter. It might be my
thermostat. Any input on this from anyone? What does yours look like?
Help. Thanks.
