April tends to be quite nice temperature wise. These days, though, there's no telling about the rain. It could be magnificent... or it could be dismal.

Edit: or anything in between. Sorry. I know that's not much help. The good news is that, if the rain does keep things wet, it's a hop, skip and jump to other areas from here.

They call it the New River Rainforest for a reason. There can be significant rain at times, but fortunately there are a handful of areas at the NRG that are fairly well sheltered even if it does rain, such as parts of Kaymoor (including the Hole, Rico Suave, etc), the Colliseum at Summersville, as well as some areas at Endless and the Meadow.

There is a recent guidebook that has good info on what to do if it rains, and there are also some nice locals that would happy to point you in the right direction at the local gear shop, Waterstone.
