i started growing in a plastic hoop house with open ends and cool them off with overhead misters, what is a good temp to shoot for?

I like day temps around 90 and warm night temps in the 70's for peak growth. I wouldn't want temps above 95 if I can control it. Last year I found that watermelons will grow well with out a ton of heat. 80-85 degrees is fine as long as the night temps aren't in the 50's.

All research I've read says 91.6° F and 100% sunlight is optimal for watermelons.
