May and Might express possibility in the present or future.
they have the same meaning.
there is no difference between this two sentence
It may rain tomorrow
It might rain tomorrow
In addition to this
Maybe spelled as one word is an adverb it means possibly it comes at the beginning of a sentence

Maybe it will rain tomorrow

May be two words is a verb form the auxiliary may + the main verb be
Correct -------------------- Jhon may be sick
Incorrect ------------------ Jhon maybe sick


Good Luck

Hi. How are you guys? I would like to participate actively in this discussion. Ok, well let us see the usages of may and might.
Using ‘may’ or ‘might’ can be a little confusing for an English learner - especially if you look too hard to find any difference in usage between the two!
‘May’ and ‘might’ are almost always interchangeable - that is, you can convey exactly the same meaning using either one. Both express a possibility of some action taking place. For example:
I may be late, so don't wait for me.
The problem may be solved in a number of different ways.
He may miss the train if he doesn’t hurry.
He might miss the train if he doesn’t hurry.

Most grammar will tell you that ‘might’ suggests a somewhat lower probability or possibility than ‘may‘ but this is a really fine distinction and you won’t be making any grammatical errors nor confusing your meaning if you use either one.
Now, when you are using ‘might‘ as the past tense of the auxiliary ‘may‘ then you stick with ‘might’ in the sentence:
He might have caught his train if he had left work on time.
Don’t forget that ‘may‘ can also be used in interrogative sentences when you are asking permission to do something. It is a common ‘polite’ form. For example:
May I use your telephone?
May I smoke?
When used for asking permission we use ‘may‘ and not ‘might’. However, just to confuse it a little, it is more and more common to use ‘can‘ when asking permission although can doesn’t, in my opinion, yet carry the same sense of polite request that using ‘may’ does :
Can I use your telephone, please?
Can I smoke?

All the best.

may and might. It may rain. It might rain. What’s the difference? Just as could is the past tense of can, might is the past tense of may: We thought we might win the tournament. But might can also be used as a substitute for may to show diminished possibility. Thus, saying We might go to the movies means that the likelihood of going is somewhat less than if you say We may go to the movies. When used to express permission, might has a higher degree of politeness than may. Thus, Might I express my opinion conveys less insistence than May I express my opinion. 1may can / might could. In many Southern varieties of English, might is used in the “double modal” construction with could, as in We might could park over there. Less frequently, one hears may can and might should. These constructions are not familiar to the majority of American speakers and are best avoided in formal writing
