    My potted Meyer lemon tree has curling under yellowing leaves. It is currently outside with daytime temps in the 70s and 50s at night. My research indicates that it might be over-watering but we have had little rain lately and I'm careful to not water until the top 2-3 inches of soil are dry...any help/advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Welcome to the Forums.

    The tree appears to be healthy. What you're seeing is likely to be normal leaf senescence.

    My citruses started leaf yellowing this summer (in June, when we had a long drought), when they got root bound. After up potting their leaves turned back green.
    They got lots of rain in August and december but it has not affected my citruses negatively. I believe, that if the substrate is draining well, then plenty of water is not detrimental.
    Check the root ball!
