What happens to a balloon when its taken outside on a cold day?

As we know, Charles's Law states that for a fixed amount of gas at a constant pressure, the volume of the gas changes in the same way that the temperature of the gas changes. So, if a balloon is taken outside on a cold winter day, which means in a low temperature, the volume will also decrease due to the lower temperature.
