Pretty much the same meaning in this context. Both used, but at Yahoo:

"change a word to" 438 hits (thus more frequent)
"change a word into" 88
They are pretty much the same. Change into implies transformation:

You can't change sand into gold.
Caterpillars change into butterflies.

But:
The weather was fine in the morning but changed to rain in the evening.

Is it corect if I write (1)?

The weather was fine in the morning but changed to rain into the evening.(1)

If yes, (1) = (2)?

The weather was fine in the morning but changed to rain to the evening.(2)

Q
Only in the evening is correct. The preposition in the expression in the evening has nothing to do with changed.
