Hi

Is this sentence fully natural in spoken English?

(Mother to an angry child...)

OK, you tell me. Is the weather such that we can plan a picnic?

Thanks,

Tom

No.

Do you really think we could have a picnic in this cold, rainy weather?

Ooph! Only one mother in several hundred thousand would use "such that".

"such that" belongs in a mathematics textbook!

Thanks again. One last question please.

Apart from a child's understanding the sentence, is there anything wrong with this sentence structure?

Is the weather such that we can...

Regards,

Tom

It's grammatical but unnatural.
