I have a simulation running in OpenFoam. I have a region (cellZone) that I want to track the temperature in over time of the simulation (transient simulation).

How do extract the volume temperature from this region to view the data (preferably not via ParaView but that is also an option). Is this something I can do with the postProcess tool?

Have a look at the options available which act on the field as a runtime available post process function. You can either volume integrate or most likely volume average.
