We have Ana. A very early start to the season.
Earth transforms sunlight's visible light energy into infrared light energy, which leaves Earth slowly because it is absorbed by greenhouse gases. When people produce greenhouse gases, energy leaves Earth even more slowly – raising Earth's temperature. http://www.howglobalwarmingworks.org/

I don't know about always, but they have been for a while.  Here was  Subtropical Storm Andrea in 2007
