Hunger must （ =will certainly ） follow after the long drought.
You must win，if you do your best．
It must snow tomorrow．
If we were not careful enough，things must be worse．
If he should abandon her，she must go mad．
Do these sentences sound good with 'must' indicating logic necessity for future time?
Thank you in advance.

Thanks, Raymott. What does 'glyphs' in your reply mean?
Thank you again.
"Must" implies authority on the part of the speaker. So, as a teacher I can say "You must do your homework" but not "You must bring your passport to the airport." Only the security guard or ticket agent can say that, I would say "you have to bring your passport," because it's a requirement but I have no authority.
These sentences don't really sound "right." I would make the following changes (everything always depends on the context, maybe I'm not seeing it):
I think they sound dated in BrE too.
