I was learnt to use "it's" with the "weather" words like "cold, hot, windy, sunny', etc. But I have come across the sentences like "Today is cold, yesterday was cold" a lot of times. Well, what about other words?
Can I say: "Today is windy/sunny/rainy?" Or it's better to say "it's windy/sunny/rainy today?"

And the second question. Which sentence is correct?

Today it's not as windy as yesterday.
Today it's not as windy as it was yesterday.
Today is not as windy as yesterday.
Today is not as windy as it was yesterday.

    I was learnt I was taught

    All the sample phrases sound fine to me. Personally I prefer the versions with it's as it strikes me as more idiomatic.
    If I were to weigh in with my own opinion I would probably say "It's not as windy today as it was yesterday"
