Question about 1996 Honda Accord
That is normal but on the "long side" of normal. If the engine temp is good while driving, the temp sensor may be slightly out of range, but if its either very hot outside or the engine is running hotter than normal that can influence it as well. That part, you have to consider as I can't see what is going on there.

I had the same problem a few months ago on my 96 Accord. After turning the engine off the fan ran for about 10minute and no extreme temp while driving. I did not pay too much attention since I live in Texas and thought it was just the warm weather. Suddenly one day the temp just went way over the normal range while I was at a stop sing but I went rapidly down as I sped up towards my house. It turned out my radiator was cracked and I was loosing coolant. There was such a small amount of coolant left in the cooling system that the car needed to be reved up to "move" the remaining coolant through the system.
My advice; check you coolant level and if low check for leaks of some sort. Hopefully is nothing serious like my cracked radiator.
