Hurricanes in the southern and northern hemispheres spin in opposite directions.
I was under the impression that not every storm consistently displays this behavior.

Right.  High pressure systems spin the opposite direction.

Yes, you are quite right. I believe that there was one!

Map of the cumulative tracks of all tropical cyclones during the 19852005 time period.
I think a very weak typhoon, I guess it would be, started near India and wandered before wandering back and weakening, before fading out just south of the equator - no Coriolis to keep it spinning I guess!

A little telling that the band with virtually no tropical storms is centred on the equator, not the sun's path as some flat earthers have claimed (not on this site as far as I know). 
During summer in Australia we often have cyclones start well north of the sun's path near the Tropic of Capricorn.
