It really depends on how much influence Edna and Emmett had been able to exert on the city by this point.
We DO know that on November 5th, Doc had the vision for the Flux Capacitor, though he didn't realize it was the key to time travel...he adapted it into his symbol instead.
well i'm assuming the timeline wouldnt be that different that the weather could have changed
I just dont' remember if Edna mentions anything about it getting struck by lightning in 1955.
This is a good indication of the 'self preservation theory'; that the space time continuum avoids paradoxes and has similar events happening in different timelines.
