    In your title, you remembered to use the word "In" at the beginning if the phrase but in your actual post, it has vanished. I would probably have said "Over the next few days ...".

    There was no need to put the first three words in capitals.

    The comma is correctly used.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
