I would say you room temps are fluctuating throughout the day. Generally I haven't had issues with a small degree of temp difference in LG's I use. And I believe the temp for still air incubation is 100.5 anyway. I could be wrong I haven't had my instructions for years. As long as theres not a prolonged spike over 102 I don't worry. And with slightly high temps might make hatch a little early but should be fine.
