You could have an issue with your automatic temperature control if it is so equipped. A temperature sensor could be at fault, or a temperature blend door issue could be present (but not likely for this concern...). Lastly, you could have a thermostat issue - sticking open intermittnetly.

Please refer to the original answer; could have a temperature blend door actuator failure. A proper diagnosis is in order.
