Comparing human decision to the weather is a bad choice. Likely means probable. Of course things can change but when human opinion is in a certain direction its likely it stays that way. Assuming of course the source is correct.

You're backing my view... the word assume... ya know what that means .. lets hope it happens. If you're married you'll also know that a likely course changes in a wrong word or a wrong look. Back to .... lets hope it happens. :-)

The use of statistical terms to express devotion to an opinion has always bugged me.

Probability has mathematical meaning when a ratio of desired outcomes to the total range of possibilities can either be calculated a priori (rolling a “7”) or from repeated sampling (weather data). In these cases terms like “virtually certain” (>99% probability), “extremely likely” (>95%), “very likely” (>90%), and “likely” (>66%) have accepted statistical meaning.

In the context at hand, the tweeter is simply expressing an opinion of his own opinion.
