Time machine automatic backups are failing on my system (2011 27" iMac). Console reports the following:

 

1/29/14 5:04:07.661 AM com.apple.backupd[1433]: Not starting automatic Time Machine backup: High system thermal level.

1/29/14 6:04:57.875 AM com.apple.backupd[1494]: Not starting automatic Time Machine backup: High system thermal level.

1/29/14 9:06:57.603 AM com.apple.backupd[1865]: Not starting automatic Time Machine backup: High system thermal level.

 

I can find little to no information about this error. Manually backing up with Time Machine works fine, but the automatic backups won't resume.
