So far we only see a huge leg to the south which makes it look like an eddy going the wrong way, but in fact they are on purpose following the wave direction now on purpose. We will learn more later.
We see an eddy patch flowing south in the 00z jan 27 data, but it would have to have been farther north to cause this. We will have to wait to get more data and then look again more carefully. It is a fairly fast moving patch of current.
