Will not mowing the lawn cause any problems for grass?

It's late October and my lawn looks like it needs mowing again. If I don't mow it, will it cause any problems for the grass?

Leaving long grass blades going into winter can encourage disease development and other problems. The grass mats down under snow, creating an ideal place for fungal diseases such as snow mold to develop, and for the protected runways of voles and mice. As long as the grass is actively growing, mow it to its proper height. Growth usually slows down after a few hard freezes, when temperatures consistently remain cold.
