Temp gauage

Hey guys, I just started noticing that my temp gauge has been moving a bit lately. I can't say if it has always done this and i just didn't notice, or if something is actually wrong. It only goes up a little bit, the needle will go just past the middle dot. Anyway, my question is does this happen to any of the rest of you, or should i start diagnosing it for a problem? Please dont start suggesting potential problems, as i am fully capable of that, i am simply wanting to find out if it is still in the normal operating range. Thanks!

A/C on? outside temp? time duration? any heat soak due to traffic conditions? mileage? have you flushed the coolant? if so, did you use HOAT?

Mine stays at 210 when driving, but it can move a little if I am stuck in traffic on a hot day only about a needle width over.
