/ Walking in the Cheviots in April - Weather?
The average daytime temperature on the summit is April probably around +5C. However, you could easily get anything from freezing to +10C, and exceptionally -5C or +15C. As for lying snow, chances are there will be only some old patches, but it could be anything from nothing to full cover.
Hill fog and high winds are the other main hazards you will need to consider. The MWIS page covering the Southern Uplands is a good place to look for a forecast up to 3 days ahead: http://www.mwis.org.uk/su.php
Don't rely on the paths. If your navigation isn't up to it, you need to get some practice in first. The Cheviots are rounded but not very difficult to navigate, you'll soon pick it up if you haven't already.
I will be running the Cheviots :) the second week of April ....
