No, the cold temperature is what bothers me.

Am I correct in my assumption of the emphasis here?
Yes, but you forgot the verb
¿Te molesta la nieve?
No, es la temperatura fría lo que me molesta.
Here you remark the temperature.
The usual answer is:
No, lo que me molesta es la temepratura fría.
Both are OK, but the first one has more emphasis.
Saludos
