Sorry, forgot to add pros and cons...

 

Pros: the look - nice green grass in the winter, it doesn't 'harm' the grass in place as it is dormant, fairly easy to get established with basic fertilizing and maintenance

 

Cons: It can take root in areas of St. Augustine that aren't well established and "choke out" the growth there leaving dead spots in the yard when it warms up and the rye grass dies off.  This increases a chance for weeds to come in.

 

Generally rye grass seed is applied early to mid November so you'd be getting in to things a little late.  It would help to do it after a front moves through and temperatures are a little lower than 80 degrees.
