API to the 02064c weatherstation

I recently acquired an 02064C weather station and use it and PC connect to gather data on my PC for further analysis. The shortest interval for PC connect is 12 minutes. I would like to grab the data more often than that. Also is the data in the CSV file all that the sensors provide? I noticed in the Weather underground personal weather station also provides the UV index. IS that  data sent by PC connect?
So I curious if there is an API that  on can program to get the data more frequently along with any other data that  may not be downloaded in the CSV? 
I'm using Windows 10 pro.

Thanks

It is possible to stream data over the USB connection at 18-second intervals.

However, there is no official public description of how the streaming works.

The best write-up I know of was done by Matthew Wall who wrote an Acurite driver for weewx.  It can be found here: https://github.com/weewx/weewx/blob/master/bin/weewx/drivers/acurite.py

The 5n1 does NOT send UV data since it has no UV sensor.  What you're seeing on wunderground is UV information pulled from some other source.  If a station is actually sending UV data, it will graphed like the other weather data.

The Acurite Atlas does have a UV and light intensity sensor, though.
