Question Repairing dry weed patches in the grass.


I have kind old grass in my backyard, and last year summer to fall everything was green and nice "grass and the some weeds" , now over the winter looks like the grass stayed green but the weeds patches kind dry out till i guess spring when they will comeback green again.

My question is: what should i use to get everything back green again?

I was looking at HomeDepot Scott "weed and seed"
but not sure if that going to help or should i use something else?
See attached pictures.

I live in California, no snow here Around Sacramento.(North)

Thanks for any advice!

Living in the north, I have trouble sometimes identifying warm season grasses compared weeds but if all that's green right now is weeds and the grass you want is dormant, this is the perfect time to spray RoundUp or other product on your weeds as the non-growing grass won't be affected by it.

Generally speaking, a soil test and a core aeration are always good first steps in trying to improve a lawn.
