Hello Marcus,

there is no support for cron-style alert filter currently, but it could be 
certainly useful and we may add it in the future.

I think the workaround with two checks will work, another solution could be to 
use "exec" action with custom script, which will send mail (using for example 
"mail" CLI utility) only if the current time matches some pattern, something 
like this:

   check ...
      if failed ... then exec "/usr/local/bin/"

Monit sets environment variables which you can use in the script to get details 
about the event:
