    1 and 3 :
    these words below are all nouns:

    The city of Kyoto
    The fact that she was a teacher.
    A dream that I become a doctor
    The weather forecast that says it's going to rain tomorrow

    22日からは雨が降るという 天気予報 is a noun
    難しくなるのではないかという 心配 is a noun

    2 :
    難しくなるのではないか is close to 難しくなるかもしれない although there's a slight difference..

    This is kind of like the person is not necessarily 100% sure if it's going to be “difficult” but thinks it might come true.

    ガンになるのではないか という不安
    合格するのではないか  という期待
