It probably got burnt by some frost, as the weather is good for the next few days you can go ahead and give it a light cut, take no more than 1/3 off. We have being cuting grass up to last week and about two seasons ago we were cutting up to Dec with no adverse problems.

Yellow tops on grass usually means it has been damaged slightly by frost. However, it should be fine to cut. Just don't cut it too short, never any more than 1/3 grass blades.

This usually does tend to mean your grass has turned yellow as a result of frost. As said above, just make sure you don't cut it down too short if you do decide to cut it.
