Are you measuring the air temperature or the beer temperature? The latter is the important value. As the air temperature fluctuates during the day the beer temperature moves much less. It is also always warmer than the air temp (at least when fermentation is active) by at least a few degrees.
It will equalize once fermentation is complete, but at that point it's too late to fix. Fermentation generates heat, I've had beer 6-7F higher than ambient before. If you don't have any, pick up one of those stick-on thermometers for your fermenters and you'll be able to better keep track.
