I think it is normal, I have seen mine hit that high once in a stop and go traffic with ambient temperature around ~105F. Keep i mind the gauge is still keeping the temperature within the center of the gauge. If it was overheating, it would not be there.
If it was idling there, I would be worried, but if it is there after some heavy application, it should be okay. I have also seen mine to get close to 110C after I climbed a steep mountain road at 70MPH and stopped at the peak. It was around 92C during the climb, but once I came to a stop, coolant quickly raised to 110C ( suspect radiator fan doesn't spin when you are above a certain speed, but that causes coolant temperature to spike if you quickly come to a stop and the fan lags).
Also a small correction, that is not the engine temperature, it is the coolant temperature. Engine temperature should be around 250C (although the gauge doesnt show oil temperature)
