GeneralNative English Speaker- probability vs Possibility Pin

During one of my presentation the statement I wrote was " blah......., therefore the possibility of missing the deadline is very high".
The whole discussion later was if I Should have used possibility or probability. My argument was that since its more on a gut feeling and guestimate , I used Possibility.

IMHO probability should be used if its backed on the solid and valid statistical numbers.

Your thoughts?
cheers,
Super
