X5 run hot, oil light began to flash

Have an X5 BMW 3.0. Temperature gauge began to move towards hot after 2 3 hours of snow traffic this week. As the temperature gauge began to move towards hot the oil light gauge would flash. As I was able to move the temperature gauge would go back down. I recently had the sensor replaced and had no problems for a month - now this. Need advice on what this is coming from and what to have checked.
