First does the cooling fan come on when you turn the AC system On? Try jumping the compressor clutch directly, check to see its engaging, It might have failedin the last day, or the system has developed a leak, test by jumping the pressure switch on the accumulator tank.

Yup, sounds like a leak. Have a local AC shop check it out.
