    I do not think so, I have put grass down at this time in NY with great success. I am not sure how much cooler you are there. I usually mow weekly up to 1st week in Oct then it spreads out.

    Best time to seed IMO. But you better get a move-on...time's a ticking and that window will be closing soon. Good luck!
