Normal coolant temperatures

I recently got my 9-5 back up and running after a longggggg repair process. today was my first time driving it on the road and I have some questions about coolant temps. I know the system is fully bled and no air is in the system. When driving on the highway at 70 without the AC running its running around 90-93c according to open SID. When driving around the neighborhood its running in the upper 90s. when I parked it I noticed that it hit 101 before I shut the engine down. I just want to make sure that these are normal temps for this car. Also its August and its 85 with super high amounts of humidity. when I idled the car when I got back it shot up to 100 but went back down after a few seconds (im guessing the fans came on) but after I closed the hood after checking for leaks it went to 101 again before I shut it down. I can hear the fans coming on low when it gets around 100. Am I just being paranoid?
