A weather change could be one reason.  Be patient.

If it is a young tree with a huge amount of fruit I'd remove some of the fruit.  they can't grow when bunched together.  We use the following rule of thumb-no pun ended.  Mak a fist and place it against one side of the fruit.  If there is other fruit with in a hand's width, remove it to give what you leave on the branch room to grow.  A younger tree will only support just so many pieces of fruit.

There are probably too many on the tree. Thin it down to at least 1 every 6 inches.
