So there was a following exercise on the test I wrote yesterday: What (gap) next week? It's going to be sunny.

So at first I wanted to fill the gap with "What is the weather going to be", but I strongly doubted it was correct, so finally I decided to put stupid sounding sentence "What's the weather like next week". But I have little hope that is might be correct. Or "what's the weather like" can be used only when we talk about today?

To me this sounds a little odd:

What is the weather going to be next week?

I would agree that "What's the weather like?" would generally be used for the current day (or indeed time), but you could apply the same logic to the original question with:

What's the weather going to be like next week?

But for more detailed information you'd likely ask:

What's the weather forecast for next week?
