Default 1998 Bonneville A/C Problem

It'* 90+ degrees and humid every day and the A/C in my 98 Bonneville is very selective on when it wants to work. It NEVER works when I first turn the car on, and rarely works when the car is not moving. When it does work it blows rather weak. It never works for more than 5 minutes.

Any ideas as to what could be wrong?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Is it not blowing, or blowing fine, and just not blowing cold. I suspect it is the former, and is a completely different troubleshooting path.
