Server Temperature Monitor?

It appears that my temp readings may not be all that unbelievable - my
server room's ambient temperature is currently hovering just about 55
degrees - and here is what sensors -f has to say about my cores:
/usr/sbin# sensors -f
Adapter: PCI adapter
Core0 Temp: +84.2°F
Core1 Temp: +87.8°F
So, given that I'm not much of a shell scripter guy, anyone have any
tips for how to get the system to mail me if the temp ever gets above,
say, 160 F?
