Damaging wind gusts will likely be the primary severe risk, but large hail and tornadoes cannot be ruled out.
Forecasters at the Storm Prediction Center have outlined the Northeast through New England to have the greatest risk for tornadoes.
The same frontal boundary will only manage to slide slightly eastward on Monday, meaning parts of the Northeast and mid-Atlantic will see an increased chance for strong to severe storms.
The primary threat from the strongest of the storms appears to be damaging winds in the form of downbursts.
The boundary is expected to linger for areas of the mid-Atlantic and Tennessee Valley into the workweek, which will help keep storm chances around for several days.
