Ambient temperature sensor

I was driving my 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt this morning when the warning chimes came on. The left side of the display below the tach changed from the temperature to three dashes. After a few seconds, the temp was displayed. However, in the course of my travels (with 3 stops) the temperature always read 67. The trip total was 5-6 miles.
