    May and Might

    Hi,

    It may rain.
    It might rain.

    Both "may" and "might" are modal verbs. What's the difference in the above sentences?

    I know some people see a difference in these. I see no difference at all.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
