    $\begingroup$ LOL -- Not being exposed to the UV rays of the sun means that the ballon will degrade much more slowly in the dark. $\endgroup$ – MaxW Mar 15 at 3:14

The balloon will shrink and get smaller as the gas inside it gets cooler, the pressure inside the balloon falls. You might also have seen that a bottle partially filled with warm water kept in a refrigerator squeezes a bit because of the air pressure inside the bottle falls. This result directly follows from the gas laws.
