Discussed by Okrand:

   {DaHjaj po} "this morning" (lit. "today morning" or "today's morning") 
[...]
   Phrases such as {jajvam po} "this day morning" or "this morning" are not
   common, but they're not ungrammatical either [...] {wa'leS po} "tomorrow
   morning", {cha'leS po} "the morning of the day after tomorrow" (literally
   "two-days-from-now morning"), and so on work quite nicely. (st.k June 1997)

{po} was used for "a.m." on Paramount's Star Trek Klingon digital watch.
