Is it ok to use a viola bow with a violin?

I am looking to purchase a new violin bow but the one I want is on backorder for several months. They have the same bow, in stock, but for the viola. Would using a viola bow harm my playing? I play / perform 3-4 nights a week for a couple hours each night. I am a former viola player of 15+ years so I do know that there is a difference in the weight of the viola and violin instruments themselves but I don't remember if there was a big difference in the bows. I am also thinking that if a viola bow is slightly heavier it might actually be a good thing to produce a louder, richer & less scratchy sound. Thanks in advance for your opinions and advice.

I would also like some recommendations for bows - i.e. what is your favorite or preferred brand?
As far as the style of my playing it is mostly fiddle, country and more blues types. I was trained in classical so I can switch from either style.

No they are not the same.
However:
Using a viola bow for violin playing can be acceptable for the type of playing you seem to do.
If you are doing a lot of spiccatto or flying spiccatto, I would suggest staying with the violin bow.
I would definitely use the violin bow for orchestral playing.
