You should be fine for reseeding. Most weed products are 21 days or less to reseed.

I am farther south than you and I prefer the fescues. I suspect they are okay in your area. Avoid rye grass as it is a rough grass. People are infatuated with the fine blade bluegrass. Even though I live in the bluegrass state, I am not one of them.

Early fall is the best time to plant. Spring planting when the temp gets to about 60F and the overnite freezes are gone.
