I wouldn't call it wrong. I think it's a use that it slowly becoming more natural.

If we can say the above changes, then why not the below changes?

I don't agree. We can say the above changes because it is an adjective.

Yes, and if we say the below changes, then below is an adjective too. That's what you're asking about, right?

"the below changes" sounds wrong to me, but "the above changes" sounds normal.

I agree with Tdol and bubbha and wouldn't use below as an adjective.

However, as Merriam-Webster for one has started listing it as such, I'll have to suck it up and stop correcting students' use of it.

EDIT: Collins, too, lists it as American usage.
