Is there a way to filter portions of a manifest to not be ran during certain hours of the day?

I have multi-part (long and complex) manifests to run against Puppet agents (all Windows servers). I want portions to run against any node in the class as normal. But I want subportions of these same manifests to not run during certain hours of the day. Is there a way to put this conditional logic into the manifest on certain actions? I want to use one manifest and one class of servers. It needs to run every 30 minutes. I just want to filter out portions of the manifests during peak hours.

You could create a custom fact for a timestamp. Then use conditional logic on the timestamp fact. You may need to separate the code to be conditionally run into a separate file and include, though it may work in a single manifest.
