No this is not possible in Google Analytics itself. You can only view the total number of a stat e.g. visits for a day - a day being the shortest period of time Analytics will report on, or another specified date (day) range e.g. for a month. You'd need another analytics service that specifically tracks and can report on this to get this information.

I ended up moving my mail account, linking my Analytics profiles to a separate GMail address, and then destroying my Google Apps domain.
