When is the soil dry enough to aerator and overseed in Kokomo,IN

I live in Kokomo, IN and missed the grass seed planting window last fall. I was told I could dormant seed anytime before spring. However, the winter weather prevented me from aerating and over seeding. The temperature in now starting to warm up and I want to know when is the soil dry enough to aerator and overseed. How is it determined? Is there a minimum required soil temperature?
Thanks for helping!

Thanks for the advice! I was not aware that you can use a starter fertilizer w/ weed control! It was my understanding the weed control would have an adverse effect on the KBG seed.
Has anyone use Greenkeeper’s Secret Jumpstart fertilizer 32,3,10? Is this starter fertilizer OK for KBG seed? It is 1/3 the cost of Scott Starter Fertilizer & when you are seeding and fertilizing an acre the cost adds up quicky.
Thanks again for all your help!
