    it's a great weather

    Is it correct to use the article in It's a great weather.

    Or one must not use the article and It's great weather is correct?

    Weather is a non-count noun (it can't exist in the plural). Thus you can never say 'a weather', only 'the weather'.

    The weather is great.
    It's great weather.

    Both are correct.

    "Weather" > Это слово - одно из неисчисляемых существительных. С неисчисляемыми существительными неопределенные артикли a и an не употребляются.

    Сказать по-английски было бы по-русски как "Сегодня хорошие погоды у нас."
