I just wonder the following sentence is correct or not:
"The better the weather
is, the better we feel."
since I usually hear things like:
"The better the weather, the better we feel."

(1) The better the weather is, the better we feel.
(2) The better the weather, the better we feel.
Sentences (1) and (2) are both grammatically valid, and have the same meaning. A fluent speaker might well use either, and would understand either. Sentence (2) could be considered a shortened form of (1). Such constructions are common.
