 Temp above newspaper vs below

Im getting a ball python this weekend from a show and I have everything setup. However I have run into some confusion. I have a tub setup 28qt with Flukers heat pad and a thermostat. On the hot side the temp below the newspapaper is around 90-92 but above the paper is only about 86. Is this ok as the ball would go under the newspaper and the hide in order to reach the higher temp right? Otherwise I would raise the temp on the thermostat in order to increase the above substrate temp but then there is a risk of it being too hot if the snake goes under the newspaper. I hope this is understandable because I really want a healthy animal.
