That is high for it. It should be around 200 degrees. You need to check for debris between the radiator and condenser and clean out if needed. Check for excessive bugs, leaves, etc in the radiator and condenser fins and use a high pressure hose to clean out.

If ok, then the fan operation should be checked and replaced if not working properly
