How likely is a lapse in U.S. government appropriations no later than 12:01 AM Saturday, February 16, 2019 (US-EST)?

I am wondering how likely it is that the U.S. government, which recently underwent a partial shutdown, will enter another such phase at midnight on the morning of Saturday, February 16, 2019.

Background: funds for the functioning of certain parts of the U.S. government have so far been appropriated only up to that point, and not beyond.

Therefore there seems to be a nonzero chance that the recent partial government shutdown could repeat, at least for a few hours or days, if not for weeks or months.

Thank you for your consideration!
