This does sound as if it's weak. However, a fully charged battery will not show a voltage as high as one that is down. If the battery stays charged, I'd say you're okay. Keep an eye on it. Is this a high mileage alternator? If so, it may voltage regulator/brush assembly time.

If you resort to a new alternator, you will be money ahead in the long run to have a Bosch certified rebuilt one. I've tried all kinds, and these are the only ones that will last a long time.

Good luck,
