    Personally I would wait until the temps start to level out a bit more. Grass doesn't germinate very well in cold weather.

    We're not very from from you over here in f'burg. I would wait at least another couple weeks. The soil temp isn't quite where it needs to be for fescue germination. You might get some rye but it sticks out like a sore thumb. Depends on customer need right now.
