No, you CAN NOT predict what a bunch (packet) of e/magnetic waves looks like. You do not know exactly its position and its momentum, you do not know exactly its energy and its time of pass between two points - all those values are mutually entangled (are Fourie-images of each other) and thus mathematically unpredictable separately from each other. But you can predict certain combinations of them.

If math tells you that certain object has certain mathematical property expressed by the equation xy=1, then x and y are entangled - their product should always conserve (=1), but the x and y separately DO NOT HAVE to be equal to some definite value. (If they were, then there may be a situation when they would disobey (=not be the solutions) the equation xy=1.
