We include a latitudinally localized increase in ionization and subsequent mass loading in a 2.5‐dimensional magneto‐hydrodynamic case study to analyze its impact on the magnetic field, the flow field geometry, and the TS location. The localized additional mass loading leads to deflection of the flow and weakens the TS. We suggest the possibility that Voyager 1 may have been inside such a region during the recent ∼ 6 month period in 2002 when Voyager 1 observed energetic particle signatures consistent with a TS crossing, but only moderate changes in the magnetic field intensity and ACR spectrum.
