Yes it is.
Under "calculation activities", you can enable autosaves at every timestep.

Calculation activities >> Solution animations (bottom most option) >> Create
Define frequency of iterations/timestep, tick the contours and define them as you want.
Note the window it is assigned to during the process.

When you run calculation, and open the window that was assigned for the contours, you will see the contours updating.

Cheers
