How can I say "It is likely that I will be at the party tomorrow"?

Es ist wahrscheinlich, dass ich morgen bei der Party sein werde.

Is the use of "wahrscheinlich" correct here?

Your suggestion is not wrong, if a bit formal. If you start your sentence with "Wahrscheinlich" it sounds quite a bit more natural:

Wahrscheinlich werde ich morgen auf die Party gehen.
Vermutlich bin ich morgen auf der Party.

Interestingly, English is rather clumsy here, because likely is an adjective without corresponding adverb. –  Toscho Dec 10 '13 at 18:17
