your condenser is sitting in front of your radiator.

Is the clutch on the compresor working when not cooling? if not unplug and inspect plug. My truck did same thing last fall when it was in the 100's. the plug was burnt on one of the wires connection and ford has had this problem because they had a new plug with connectors and shrink tubing for a water tight connection. took about ten minutes to fix. o problems since.

Check the air blend doors under the dash and check the vacuum lines that work them. you could have something hanging up the blend doors.

Check for power @ the a/c compressor plug, and if you have power, the compressor clutch should kick in. If it isn't kicking in, try to lightly tap on the face of the compressor clutch with a small hammer. If it kicks in you probably have a shorted pull in coil on your compressor clutch. You might also check the pressure switch on your reciever/dryer as they like to fail as well. Also, try blowing out your condenser, if it is plugged with debris it will not change the state of your refrigerant because it can't dissipate the heat fast enough.
