The word "πιάνω" means "to catch", but in a text I found the phrase "πιάνει δροσιά".  What does it mean in this sentence? Are there any other similar expressions with "πιάνει"?

The phrase "πιάνει δροσιά" means "αρχίζει να έχει δροσιά" ("it becomes cool").

In the same way we say "πιάνει ζέστη" = it becomes hot, "πιάνει κρύο" = "it becomes cold", "πιάνει βροχή" = "It starts raining".

Other expressions with the verb "πιάνω":

"με πιάνουν τα γέλια" = "I start laughing"

"με πιάνουν τα κλάματα" = "Ι start crying"

"με πιάνει απελπισία" = "I become desperate"

"με πιάνει το παράπονο" = "I become sad"
