Like father, like sons.

A Woods Hole scientist and his two sons took home $250,000 after winning a contest that challenged participants to develop temperature and precipitation forecasts over three-to-four week and five-to-six week periods every two weeks for a year.

The Falmouth Enterprise reports that scientist Raymond Schmitt of Gull Road and his sons Eric, of Boston, and Stephen, of Cambridge, based their predictions on ocean salinity.

The three took home the top prize in the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation’s Sub-Seasional Climate Forecast Rodeo.
