As a result of the unexpected turn of events with the weather, President Kennedy opted to not go with the plexiglass bubble top on the 1961 Lincoln Convertible despite the wishes of the Secret Service. Crowds were already lining the streets in Dallas and President Kennedy wanted them to be able to see him during the ride which was expected to last less than an hour. The motorcade drove through most of the planned route and was about to turn onto a road which would allow it to speed up, but first it had to slow down as it turned to go through Dealey Plaza around 12:30 pm. Shortly after slowing down for the turn into Dealey Plaza, shots rang out killing the 35th President and seriously injuring Texas Governor John Connally. Had the weather remained cloudy with light rain as predicted, the assassination of President Kennedy may not have taken place on that fateful day.
