Yes - with a Cura plugin. That would be my strongest recommendation and once you do it once it will remember this and do it for all your prints (unless you disable it again).

I also recommend you always watch the first layer as if a print is going to go wrong it's usually the first layer. And if you do it's trivial to lower the temp manually. Having said that you can use one of the existing plugins. There is a generic one that lets you insert any gcode you want at any layer height. I'm not sure which ones work with Cura 13.05 and newer though as Daid changed the moves to use both G0 and G1 but the plugins don't all look for that.

Or you can do it manually with a text editor. The gcodes are listed here:

And also here if you scroll way down:

    Many thanks

    Unfortunately TweakAtZ works incorrectly in cura version 13.10 RC1. It puts in a bed temperature change line but in the wrong place in the code. I guess Daid has changed something and the plugin would have to be changed to work with the latest version which I understand is coming out of beta any day now.

    Edit

    False alarm. TweakAtZ does work. Unfortunately I have a Z5.0 value in my start gcode file and that triggered TweakAtZ. So long as I don't use Z5.0 as the TweakAtZ value it seems OK.

        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
