The battery most likely will lose capacity. Capacity loss for Li-Ion batteries strongly depends on the temperature and raising it that much will probably have some effect. Apart from that, I doubt much will happen you'd notice.

Also, it will probably get a nasty sun burn and will be very, very thirsty. ;) –  joeqwerty Jul 2 '10 at 11:26
