    Smile the weather forecast

    Hello
    I'd like you to check the following sentence.

    #1 The weather forecast says that it will rain this evening.

    Question 1
    Is #1 natural? If not, would you give me other expressions?

    Question 2
    Which is more appropriate to use in this sentence, "this evening" or "tonight"?

    Thank you.

    Your sentence is totally correct. If you want to sound more like a weather report on TV you can also say:

    Weather forecast calls for rain this evening.
    There is rain in the forecast for later on this evening.
    Forecast for tonight: rain.

    this evening/tonight are both OK.
    Rain later tonight.
    Rain is anticipated later this evening.
    Tonight will bring rain.

    etc., etc.
