Somebody correct me if I am wrong, but this sentence sounds incorrect to me. We might say the evening is cold or that it is cold this evening. I don’t think we can say the dusk is cold.

It's correct, but nowadays the concept of dusk is uncommon outside of a poem say

"Dark frost was in the air without, The dusk was still with cold and gloom, "

It's grammatical, but unusual word choice. Evening or night is better.

I agree dusk is cold sounds wrong. The report window doesn't allow you to flag that the English looks strange

"This dusk is cold." I've never said it before, and yes it sounds like an old poem. But it's valid English, and I like it. I might say it next time it's cold at dusk!

I have never said this sentence. Maybe drop this & say dusk is cold

Not a sentence that a native English speaker would ever say. Talking about dusk in general you couls say 'It's often cold at dusk.' But nobody would say 'this dusk'.
