I think you'll be fine. The temperature of the bales is the most critical issue at this point. 92-95 degrees 3 days later is perfectly normal. That's probably not a lot greater than the ambient outside temperature was the day you baled it. Keep checking the temperature, if it isn't rising appreciably, you're home free. 'Wildest thing I ever saw one time was a field of baled round bales sitting in the field, with 3 of them on fire! It was unreal.

I wonder what moisture % the burning bales were baled at? Back it the 80's before I had a moisture tester I baled some wheat hay that was cut in the boot stage that laid on the ground for 10 days.The wheat rattled and seemed dry so I baled it. 2 months later I drove by the hay stack lot and smelled a "sweet smell". I put my hand in the bale and it was still warm and brown stuff resembling molasses stuck to my hand but no fires. The cows loved it and ate every stem.
