I've not seen them but apparently INPA often shows water pump speed codes before it actually fails.

Pull codes right now if you have the equipment. If not either replace the pump or pull over immediately when the temp light comes on and pay for the tow. Even if INPA shows nothing I'd still spend a day on the weekend swapping the pump and battery at that age + with those symptoms. Actually I personally would not drive that car until the pump is swapped out - it's out of warranty so any knock on damage from overheating will cost you too .
