    What terrible weather is an exclamation - a comment on the weather.
    How terrible doesn't particularly refer to the weather - it doesn't say.
    - "I nearly had an accident because of the rain this morning."
    - "How terrible!" (referred to the above sentence.

    Yes they are. :)

    Person a: "It's been raining almost the whole week."
    Person B: "Really? How terrible, I wanted to have a picnic."
    Person B: "What terrible weather we are having." This is formal though.
