Partitioning dynamically?

Quick question. I run a DB that sees about 160,000 inserts a day across 3 tables (primary key is a md5sum) and does contain a date field -- but the date field is pretty much always NOW(). I want to create a table that at first contains only one partition -- and then use the job scheduler to simply add a new partition every week. Basically, I just want to use partitioning to split my data up week by week.

Is this possible? All the examples I have seen seem to reference some sort of context for splitting data into partitions, which I don't really need.

Any help anyone could give would be awesome!
