Parts of the day Hi, there Could you help me? Do you say "early/late in the morning/afternoon" or "(the) early/late morning/afternoon"? What about "late at night" and "late in the night"? And do you use "the" before "early morning/afternoon"" For example: Would you say "There is rain expected late in the morning/(the) late morning until late in the afternoon/(the)late afternoon. The rain is expected to let up late at night/late in the night" "There is snow expected early in the evening/early evening into (the) early overnight" Please, which ones would you use? Thank you very much!

I'd write, "Rain is expected late (this) morning until late (this) afternoon. " - if I am talking about today "Rain is expected late in the morning until late in the afternoon. " - if I say I am talking about tomorrow The rain is expected to let up late tonight - if it is today The rain is expected to let up late at night - if I am talking about tomorrow "Snow is expected from early evening until early tonight" = talking about today "Snow is expected from early in the evening until early at night" = talking about today (overnight is not used here - it is an adjective. You can say something like "we are expecting some overnight snow"
