    Post usage of the word 'hope'

    Dear teachers,
    Please help me with the usage of the word 'hope'. Thank you!

    #1 I hope it will be nice tomorrow.
    #2 I hope it is nice tomorrow.
    Which sentence is better?

    I'm having a party tonight. I hope my best friend, Jenny, can come. Which one (#3 or #4) is appropriate to ask?
    #3 I hope you will come tonight.
    #4 I hope you come tonight.

    Which sentence is better? They are both fine, we can use the present simple to talk about the future as well as "will".
    #3 I hope you will come tonight.
    #4 I hope you come tonight. The same thing applies with these two.
