Many firms produce vented gear that has the effect of lowering the air temperature before it hits you.  The BMW Aurflow suit is one of these which is constructed of a material resembling a radiator grill. Much cooler than just a T shirt and you get protection from direct sunlight.  I've used such kit in temperatures above 30 C and stayed comfortable ish.

I can't vouch for riding in the hot and humid South of the US, but I've ridden in 104 degree heat in the Nevada desert, and anything more than a cotton T shirt on top is just too much to bear!! Admittedly, I also wore armoured jeans, thin leather gloves and some HD boots, along with the good ol' pi*s pot skiAddd lid!

104 in the desert feels like 104.
104 in the southeast feels like 124.
Humidity is a real pain in the neck.
