Hi

You can use "be going to + verb" when you want to talk about what you have decided to do or what you intend to do (in the future).

I am going to get up at 5:30 tomorrow morning. = I intend to get up at 5:30 tomorrow morning.

Hi,

Apart from 'going to' meaning intention used with a personal subject, it can also be used with an impersonal subject as in: I read in the newspaper that it is going to rain tomorrow. In that sense 'going to' indicates what is likely to happen.
