Well, the conversion rate from W to °C is around 0.56.

The luminous efficiency of a 100 W bulb is around 2.6% which means that 97.4% is dissipated heat.

The result is that the temperature at the filament is around 175 °C.

Now you have to report that temperature all over the bulb's surface, which you have to calculate..

When the power is off, it's generally room temperature.
