    1) It is likely that she has forgotten about the meeting. OK

    She may/might/could have forgotten about the meeting. (are both “possibility” and “probability” included??) Those three possibilities are correct; "should," however, means there's an obligation to do something.

    OK

    3) I’m supposed/expected to work this weekend. I should work this weekend. OK

    You are to stay here until I return. You must stay here… OK

    4) It is probably too cold to go to the beach. It might/could be too cold to go to the beach.

    5) He is likely to visit us tonight/He will probably visit us tonight. / Maybe he will visit../Perhaps he will visit…. It is likely that he will visit us… all OK

    He should visit us tonight. This also means there's an obligation, not just a possibility.
