When "an/a" can be added before the structure“adj.+ un.” ?

1.time un.----What a good time!
2.weather un.---- What good weather!

Why can we say" a good time", but not "a good weather"? What about other uncountable nouns?

    You are right. It is because "weather" is uncountable. This rule is true for any uncountable noun. For example, "What interesting information!" but NOT "What an interesting information."

    However, if you add a "container word," you can use a/an. For example: What an interesting PIECE OF information!
