Malay/Indonesian does, to an extent: besok 'tomorrow', besok lusa 'day after tomorrow' -- lusa has no other use. kemaren 'yesterday', kemaren dulu 'day before yesterday'-- dulu, however, means 'earlier' and is widely used in other contexts. I'm not sure, but there may be regional Indo. languages that also cover +/- 2 days.
