I am looking to hide/show divs with jQuery based on a specific time period throughout the day.

I am looking to hide/show divs with jQuery based on a specific time period throughout the day.

There does not need to be any animation, just visibility based on time.

Is this possible?

Yes it is very possible:

Look google for a javascript that knows how to say good morning good day or good evening
and adjust it to set you div's style to visibility:block; in the morning and visibile at noon or so ...
shouldn't be a big issue!
Sure it is! And you don't need JQuery for that either. Here's the sample code, provided you want to check time on client's side. For more javascript time functions look: http://www.tizag.com/javascriptT/javascriptdate.php
<div id="id1">Hide me</div>
<script type="text/javascript">
//Hide id1 based on time of day
var currentTime = new Date()
if (currentTime.getHours() > 20) {
	document.getElementById('id1').style['display'] = 'none';
