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.
