Haven't seen higher than 195 degrees on mine and the fan has ben silent so far - would bet it comes on around 200 degrees.

Will be mid-spring around here before there is a possibility of that happening again.

I think it went up that high cause like you said you're sitting and there's heat from other cars etc. Shouldn't be a big deal but if it stays that high while driving (normal speed limit or thereof) or goes higher then worry but otherwise don't worry.

An old trick to cool an overheated engine is to turn the heater on full blast with heater fan on its highest setting. (The heater is just another radiator.)

You might get overheated, but it will cool the car.
