Hot right fender

Hi today I recharge the AC gas of my Boxster 986 2002.
For that reason I put my hand on the right front fender it was hot, my laser temp probe measure 150F. The other side is 130F and less dispersed. The fan was on in both sides with more flow in the right side, and the car temp was 90F.

Everything looks fine, this temperature in the fender is normal?

Thanks in advance.

Iím pretty sure that hot coolant enters the right radiator first and then flows to the left side before returning to the engine.
Would explain why that side is hotter.
