Hmmm 156 jts overheating diagnostics please?

hi guys , wee problem with my jts on way home tonight , got stuck in traffic, and infocentre bleeps and shows hi temp, stop immediatly , red light on and temp needle across 2/3 of the way temp gauge, however , pulled over turned off engine , and turned ignition on , not starting the engine, but allowing the fan to take over to cool engine, and put air con over to hi setting, red light goes out temp dropped a bit (still high tho), and i drive off , down a slip road onto dual carraigeway,temp drops down to almost 70c mark, how weird?, any ideas really apprecitaed, its going for a timing belt job tommorow, my only worry is if i get stuck in trasffic again at rush hour, incidently , my expansion tank showed no water , until i opened the top slowly, and all the water came up and back into the tank to almost fill it , thermostat?, or waterpump do you recon??
