    It's some weather we're having, isn't it?"

    May said, "It's some weather we're having, isn't it?"

    Peter replied, "It certainly is."

    3) Is it a common expression?

    4) Is it a kind of British or American expression?

    Dear Ju,
    it does not necessarily mean that it is an excellent weather. It means it is an unusual weather.
    For example, "Churchill was some leader, wasn't he?"
    I am not a teacher of English, just someone who loves the language.
    The usage is quite common all over the world. And you may use this expression with anyone, depending on circumstances.
