This morning my 2018 hatchback got all the way heated up, then on my commute to work it slightly dipped down in temp. It’s -4° where I’m at. Is this something to be worried about?

It is normal in extremely cold weather for the engine temperature to drop a bit or run a bit cooler. Especially in town where its not making much heat.

I've never seen any fluctuation in my Temperature gauge whether its 125 F outside or as low as 45 degrees. However I wouldn't be concerned on these cold days

OP is stating -4F ambient, I can attest that starting at around 0F the small Cruze engine struggles to keep at operating temps, especially in town. Below -15F I find even on the highway, operating temp is hard to reach and once back it town drops off. The cabin heater is taking more heat away than can be produced in waste from the engine.
