Tlihe next thing which meteorologists have to determine are the causes which produce this shlift in the posi tion of the centre of action. If that could be done a step wouhld Ce taken to forecast itg the general path of the cyclones which dlrift across the Atlaitid to Europe, and, for e-ample, sometimes hit and sometimns miss tile I.ritish Isl'nds for periods of mnontlhs together.
