On the Intel site, Link to your CPU, after Tjunction you have 105ºC. This means that it stands up to that temperature.

Normal may be a matter of opinion, but for me, normal is between 50ºC to 70ºC for low usage and up to 80ºC if all the processors are working close to 100%. If somehow the 90ºC are passed I would say that something is wrong.
