a/c flashing dashlight

I have a 1998 Chevy Malibu with the 3.1 V6 engine. It recently started being intermittent with the air blowing cold, then warm. I noticed the a/c light flashes on and off as it does this. I have not had it checked yet for charge, as it does still blow very cold. It seems to occur with more frequency at low speeds and low fan setting. Would this be a symptom of a low charge, or could a switch be the culprit ? Thank you ahead of time for your input and knowledge. Jim

Could be a pressure switch cutting it off when the pressure gets too high, could be undercharged.

Either way, job for a professional versed in A/C repair
