Good afternoon!  I hope you have had a great week!  Of course it is almost the weekend and I am sure everyone is ready for Saturday and Sunday.  I actually need to get a little bit of shopping done as I will be out of town for the next couple of weeks.  However, I will still be here updating you.  Here is my latest video-blog to let you know what is moving in and where we are in the pattern.

Check out my long range forecast below.
