Then by midnight rain will convert to Freezing rain/sleet giving the area light ice accumulations of .25 of an inch. This mix will transition to snow by noon Friday and last until Midnight Friday night. Snowfall will range from near 2 inches in Chillicothe to near 7 inches along the I-71 corridor, and then totals will drop significantly North and West of there.
