WeeWX reports can be run at multiples of your archive interval but they 
cannot be run any more frequent than the archive interval. If you want 
weeWX to do something more frequent than the archive interval then you need 
write a custom service to do what you want (in your case generate some 

I am not sure of your understanding of weeWX' inner workings or your python 
knowledge so my apologies if I am explaining what you already know. It is 
fairly trivial to create a custom service that is tied to the 'loop 
interval' of your station (refer to Loop packets 
<http://weewx.com/docs/customizing.htm#LOOP_packets> in the Customization 
Guide if you don't know about loop packets and their interval). When you 
write a custom service you lose a lot of the conveneince functions that 
come with the weeWX report engine (the ability to use tags and the 
associated aggregation, formatting and conversion abilities) so you need to 
do a lot of the data gathering, processing, formatting and output yourself. 
If you have a basic understanding of python you should be able to work your 
way through some examples and ultimately create your own. A lot of the 
functions you need to access data within weeWX already exist in the weeWX 
API, its mainly the working out what you want, producing your output and 
handling the corner cases (ie dealing with None values) that take up your 

If you are still keen, Customizing the weeWX service engine 
<http://weewx.com/docs/customizing.htm#service_engine> in the Customization 
Guide has some basic examples. One you get a feel for things you can dive 
into some more advanced services that do a similar thing to what you want 
to do. The crt extension <https://github.com/weewx/weewx/wiki/crt> 
implements a loop based service that does something similar to what you 
want to do. Also the realtime gauge-data extension 
<https://github.com/gjr80/weewx-realtime_gauge-data> does a similar thing 
to the crt extension but it produces a JSON format file to drive the 
SteelSeries weather gauges.

Hope that helps and don't be afraid to ask if you don't understand.
