If your main goal is erosion control, then seeding with rye is about your only choice. You will have warm enough day's to get germination but it is going to be slow. You need to keep the water on those seedling's to get the most growth. 1/4" - 1/2" tall ryegrass is what you can expect, but that's what happen's when you overseed at the wrong time of year. In the spring though, that grass will take off and will seriously compete with whatever you have overseeded, that will degrade whatever grass is there now, then that rye is going to check out in May, just be aware of that.
