I am attempting to replicate blenders particle system alignment using geo nodes. the issue I'm having is that I cant get the particles to stay upright, is it possible to align to something like normal - tangent in the particle system?

Many Thanks!

This is the geo nodes version with node tree: geonodes enter image description here

and this is what I'm trying to achieve: All the arrows point downwards while still aligned to normal enter image description here

Use additional Align Rotation to Vector, but at this time select Pivot Axis, in my case is Y:

Using this setting, Blender rotates points around local axis Y
