May vs Might - English Grammar - Teaching Tips
Even though many people use may and might interchangeably, they actually have slightly different meanings. The word may, for example refers to a possibility, while might conveys slightly more uncertainty. In the example There are dark clouds in the sky. It may rain later, we use may because the dark clouds suggest the possibility of rain. The sentence I’m sick but I might come to the party uses might because it is not certain the person will go to the party. This means, you should use 'may' when there is some kind of a sign that predicts or indicates future happenings. You should use 'might' when expressing something a little more unlikely or uncertain.
