from link:
The forecast said that there's a possibility of snow tonight

from link:
There's a distinct possibility (that) I'll be asked to give a speech.

Both those examples clearly indicate that the possibility is unknown. i.e. cannot be guaranteed to be either true or false.

The first one especially is basically saying: "The forecast said that there's a chance of snow tonight".
