This could be due to many things. Cooler weather can do this, as well as really hot weather. It could be not getting enough water as well.

Another thing that could be happening is that it is getting too much nitrogen, and not enough phosphorus, and potassium. There are citrus fertilizers that are designed for these trees. I would recommend using this once or twice per year.
