It ended up being wet, windy and wild, then came the big Freeze which had been billed as a mild winter.
The government's forecasters have not been with it lately it seems.
But now a small firm of forecasters from Wales, called Positive Weather Solutions, who've correctly predicted the wet and the cold, are saying this summer will be the hottest on record.
They say average temperatues in June, July and August will beat even those of the 1976 heatwave when stand pipes and drought became a feature of daily life.
As a nation we're famous for talking about the weather and with the mercury set to soar beyond 38 degrees , lets hope this summer is becomes a hot topic of conversation.
