Correct hydrometer reading if above 60 degrees.

If you are suppost to get a correct hydrometer reading at 60 degrees, and my beer is usually around 64 degrees, will it my reading higher or lower with a warmer temp?

You could also use the hydrometer adjust that in Beersmith, that's what I do. 

Having said,  if your wort is at 64 then you might be a point below what it actually is at 60
