    I don't like such weather

    Hi,

    Is "I don't like such weather. It makes me feel more sad" correct?

    And such weather implies that the listener knows what kind of weather you are talking about.

    Samuel Beckett could be depressed by good weather:

    Walking through a Paris park on a fine summer morning with a companion, Beckett was asked if it was a beautiful day. He agreed that indeed it was a beautiful day. "Makes you feel glad to be alive, doesn't it," pursued the companion. Beckett pondered. "I wouldn't go that far," he eventually replied.
