Can a temperature of 99 F be a fever if I normally run around 96.5 degrees?

Can a temperature of 99 F be a fever if I normally run around 96.5 degrees? My body temperature normally runs pretty low, averaging at about 96.5 degrees, but sometimes down to 95.3 or so. Would a temperature of 99 be considered a moderate fever for me? It's 2.5 degrees higher than normal for me, but I know 99 degrees isn't particularly significant in general.

It could be considered as fever as it is 2.5 degrees higher than your usual body temperature.
