If it’s 90-something when your performance occurs, it’s likely that the organ will be sharp (pipes go sharp in warm weather, flat in cold), and the amount of sharpness can vary greatly based on many factors (how close the organ chambers are to the outside, the temperature of the air going into the pipes, etc.).
