"لا أُحِبّ اَلْطَّقْس اَلْبارِد."

Why do we repeat ال here for the adjective? To make it post-positive?

No. The adjective here is attributive (attached to the noun, الطقس), and in this case the adjective must follow the noun in all its attributions: gender, number, definition. Since the noun has AL, then the adjective must have AL as well.
