Storing data in the computer

I have designed a temperature sensor system (LM35 with Arduino Uno R3) which displays the temperature on the serial monitor. However, I want to store the temperature data on the computer too. How can I do that?
If possible, how can we later access that data from the computer for future reference to the Arduino Uno micro controller?

It's possible. Take a look here

Can also be done by some terminal-programs (several)
