情态动词: may might 1. It may not even be cold.
2. It might be windy.
1. may (可能): 暗含不确定的意思。 He may be at home . 2. might:表可能，但它的含义比 may 更不确定。
He might come soon .
? There may be a few showers, so bring an umbrella with you.
? might 不 may 没有太大的区别，形式上might 是 may 的过去式 ，但在表示将来的可能情况时，might 表示的可能性比may 表示 的可能性还要小。例如：
? Take your swimming clothes because you might want to go swimming in the sea. ? 带上游泳衣吧，说丌定你想要到海里游泳呢。
? 英语中表示可能的方式有许多，除使用情态动词 may / might 以外，还可以通过will 以及表示“可能”的形容 词和副词表达。常用的有：It is possible to do sth. ..., It is
possible that …, 主语 + will probably / possibly + v.等。 ? 例如： Is it possible to visit Alaska in December?十二月去阿
It is possible that it’ll be snowy in the night.
It will probably be cold and wet. ? 天气很可能会又湿又冷。 ? probably 表示“很可能”，所以表示的可能性要比 possible 大。
probably 表示推测，放在助 动词之后，实意动词之前。
It’ll probably be cold tomorrow.
? What will the weather be like in…… tomorrow? ? ------It may/may be…. ? It will probably/probably be…….
? What will the temperature be? ? ------It may be…../ It will probably be……..
