How can I rephrase the modal should when expressing probability? Thank you very much.

He should visit us tonight = he is likely to visit us tonight
HE will probably visit us tonight.
The meaning of
He is expected to visit us tonight is different.

  • Foreign languages -

    He will probably visit us tonight. = He is expected to visit us tonight.

    (should = ought to)
