AC is blowing hot air when car is not moving in hot weather (above 90)

(2005 Ford Freestyle)
in Potwin, KS on July 05, 2014
AC is blowing hot air when car is not moving in hot weather (above 90). However, AC is blowing cold air when driving (especially above 60 miles/hour). When temperature is below 90, the AC is blowing cold air, even when it's not moving.

Is the engine running hot?

It could be the evaporator fan. With the engine cold and hood open, start the engine and turn the AC on. The fan behind the radiator should turn on, there may be a delay on that car. If it doesn't come on you probably have a bad fan or maybe a bad fan relay or fuse that blew. It could be low on freon, some ACs do funny stuff when low on charge.
