    In the first place, these are not adverbs. They are nouns.
    Now, to answer your question:
    in the morning, at noon, in the afternoon, in the evening, at night, on Monday, on the holiday (meaning a special day when people don't have to work), on the weekend (AmE) at the weekend (BrE), in (the) spring

    Also:
    at Christmas, at Easter (BUT on Christmas Day)

    Just one more thing:

    on holiday ( BrE - meaning a period of suspension of school or work)
    on vacation (AmE - meaning the same thing)
