Is there some program available that will log data that can be set to a certain time interval?  Not necessarily weather station software, but weather data software to log?  I'd like to get minute-by-minute data to archive.  A dayfile, weekfile, monthfile, yearfile, all-time records file would be nice.

Ambient Weather does provide an API for getting data from, but I've not heard of any software that has been created to take advantage of this functionality. But the opportunity is there for someone to create such software easily as everything that is needed is already supported via the Ambient's API.

As an alternative immediate solution you could grab your Ambient Weather stations data by adding an ObserverIP (and a WS-1000-BTH) to you existing hardware setup. Then you would also need for yet another device to pull and save that data from the ObserverIP. There are several options of types of devices/computers/software to accomplish this.

I'm pulling data from my ObserverIP using a Meteobridge and saving all data to an SQL database on my network. This data is something that any number of existing 3rd party software can access.

You could also pull the data from the ObserverIP using a computer running Weather-Display software or WeeWx. That computer could be something as simple and cost effect as a Raspberry Pi.
