Perineal rye vs tall fescue

We are in a transition zone and 90% of fescue lawns die out because of drought and heat every year. I have completed all my fescue seeding an hoping the customer waters properly.

I'm in the process of going back to lawns I mow and mowing if possible and filling in thin spots with more seed. Anyone know what soil or air temp you would stop seeding?

Any thoughts on using perineal rye as it turns cooler. The varieties I have used look just like fescue only it dies off faster with heat. I've thought about ping back over some lawns that I now with a hand spreader or possibly 1-2 lbs per 1000 to fill it in. Thoughts on that?
