Yellowing leaves usually indicate too much water. Your lemon tree will need full sunshine in order to ripen those fruits but it sounds like it is getting too much water. If you can move it under cover during rainstorms, or if you can cover over the soil surface to keep the rain from flooding the soil, I think your tree will be happier. Best wishes with your tree!
