air conditioner not blowing cold at idle

The airs been working great in my 95 since ive owned it. Now this summer when its idling it starts to blow warm arm. Going down the road itll freeze you at like normal but after a few minutes at idle its warm again. Compressor is charged. Any ideas?

Fan clutch is bad you can get a new one at the parts house for around $50.

No that's not normal at all if your A/C stops blowing cold air at low or no speed you have a bad fan clutch low refrigerant pressure a warn a/c pump or a slipping belt.
