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.

I think you could omit 'more'. It gives one the impression that you are normally sad. Unless you really are. Otherwise, it's fine.

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.
