Your problem is you have read or heard forcasts that said 'could' and, in your desire for bad news have substituted the word 'will'.

If you go back to the source material, and not the reinterpretations of others, you may be able to see that each 'could' has a possible 'could not' or a possible opposite. They were usually saying something like "It could be good and it could be bad. We don't really know."

You have selectively edited this to be all bad news. Lighten up. It will be fine.
