This experimental product from the Climate Prediction Center issued today
(Jun 11th) shows a high risk (60%) of excessive heat across the Columbia
Basin on June 19th and 20th, with a moderate risk (40%) over this same area
June 21st and 22nd.  The remainder of Central and Eastern Washington is in
a moderate risk June 19-22nd.
The European model shows a similar pattern

00z/June 11th ECMWF model forecast of 500mb heights and 850 mb temperatures

How hot will it be?  Well it's too far out to narrow down the numbers, but
90s are a good bet for many valleys, possibly touching close to 100° in the
hottest locations.  Note that this event is still 8-10 days out, and the
details will probably change.  But, don't be surprised by an extended spell
of heat starting around Tuesday, June 19th.
