My guess is slipping belt or wet alt/belts.
HTH - Scott in BOSTON 4KQ had similar issue loose belt.

I took a Google walk thru the archives, and I gather that worn brushes can
often account for alternator problems. I'm not about to get under the car
(cold and rainy in Seattle), but w/174K on the car, I imagine worn brushes
plausible. Or do the symptoms point elsewhere? The way the problem came and
went for no apparent reason doesn't leave me confident about driving the car
right now! Thank you.
