    I hope that the weather is/will be fine tomorrow.

    1. I hope that the weather is fine.

    2. I hope that the weather will be fine.

    3. I hope that the weather is fine tomorrow.

    4. I hope that the weather will be fine tomorrow.


    I think 1 and 2 can be used interchangeably. \

    Then how 3 and 4?

    1 and 2 can't be used interchangeably in all situations. 3 and 4 probably can.
    The problem with 1 and 2 is that you haven't stipulated whether you mean now or some other time.
