    It's freezing in Alaska. Can you say:

    I'm not good with cold weather.

    VS

    I'm not good with the cold.

    Are both okay?

    Yes. Or you could phrase it as "I don't like cold weather/the cold" or "Cold weather doesn't agree with me".
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....

    Why is it okay to use with here? What does the sentence actually mean?

    It's like I can't cope with cold weather.
