SLK Engine Heatup

I recently bought this nut car with 140000 miles on it. So far running good with no problem except I noticed engine temperature stay close to 100 during normal operation. At signal stops or slow moving trafic it hits 100. Now my question is, Is it the normal operating temperature or my engine is running hot ? I am not using AC as outdoor temp is between 55 to 80. I am going to replace the radiator coolent this weekend but I don't think it will make much difference. So any suggestion or hint ?
