Browning can be caused by droughty conditions - more frequent watering will help - or it could be simply the result of warm weather on cool season grasses. Cool season grasses thrive in the spring and fall months but will brown out and go dormant when the weather gets hot. There's not much you can do, except overseed with a warm weather tolerant grass seed. Best wishes with your lawn.
