Yes, it's possible, but if you have no idea which program you want to 
read temperature data from, what makes you think we would have any better 
idea? This is a Python forum, not a "Windows programs that give 
temperature data" forum.

I recommend you start by doing some research into how to read the 
temperature data, including the name of the program. Once you have that, 
come back to us for help in using Python.
