Default Annual Ryegrass

I'm planning on seeding my backyard with annual ryegrass so i don't have to stare at dirt all winter. Is Monday (10 Oct) too soon to plant? Looks like the weather is supposed to cool down a little next week.

Google says; When to Plant Ryegrass Seed. BETWEEN 60 & 75 DEGREES: Cool season grasses such as Annual and Perennial Ryegrass, grow best when the soil temperatures are between 50 and 65 degrees F. These temperatures usually occur when the daytime air temperatures are between 60 and 75 degrees.

They cool season grass grows in cool weather. But it takes warm weather for the seed to germinate and pop open. I would plant away. Get water on the seed after getting it down. If your yard is all dirt get a bail of straw to throw over the top of your seed. Straw will help hold some moisture. If you can water everyday just a bit until it begins to sprout you will be good. If it sprouts then gets really warm add some water. In other words you be good
