Could be one of many things related to the cooling system. Sounds most likely to be a bockage in the radiator, restricting coolant flow and reducing the cooling ability.

A good flush of the cooling system should help.

Thermostat may have hit the s**t...check if yours is still in good working condition.

If not, blockage somewhere as brandoando said.
