  • New Orleans, Louisiana (88 degrees - broken)
  • Galveston, Texas (85 degrees - tied, originally set in 1886)
  • Louisville, Kentucky (85 degrees - tied, set Tuesday)
  • Jackson, Kentucky (84 degrees - broken)
  • Roanoke, Virginia (83 degrees - tied, originally set in 1950)
  • Lynchburg, Virginia (83 degrees - tied, originally set in 1950)

Daily high-temperature records were set Wednesday in McAllen, Texas (98 degrees), New Orleans, Louisiana (88 degrees), Shreveport, Louisiana (87 degrees), St. Louis, Missouri (85 degrees), Nashville, Tennessee (85 degrees), Morgantown, West Virginia (82 degrees), Joplin, Missouri (82 degrees), Springfield, Missouri (80 degrees), Cleveland, Ohio (78 degrees), and Akron, Ohio (77 degrees).  

One other interesting tidbit is that Pittsburgh set a daily record of 80 degrees Wednesday, making it only the fourth time a high of 80 degrees was recorded in November.
