Your first frost of the season will arrive within the next 2-3 weeks so It's too late this year to overseed your lawn. If you've already purchased grass seed, keep the packaged unopened until late April and overseed your lawn then. You'll have much better results. If you overseed now the weather can quickly turn and the new grass won't have an opportunity to establish. If this happens, you will need to overseed next spring. I would vote for simply waiting until next spring!
