Serial Sending Glitch

I am trying to send DHT data through an XBee. I combined sketches and ended up with the following:

/*****************************************************************
XBee_Serial_Passthrough.ino

Set up a software serial port to pass data between an XBee Shield
and the serial monitor.

Hardware Hookup:
  The XBee Shield makes all of the connections you'll need
  between Arduino and XBee. If you have the shield make
  sure the SWITCH IS IN THE "DLINE" POSITION. That will connect
  the XBee's DOUT and DIN pins to Arduino pins 2 and 3.

*****************************************************************/
// We'll use SoftwareSerial to communicate with the XBee:
#include <SoftwareSerial.h>
#include "DHT.h"
#define DHTPIN 35 
#define DHTTYPE DHT22  
DHT dht(DHTPIN, DHTTYPE);
// XBee's DOUT (TX) is connected to pin 2 (Arduino's Software RX)
// XBee's DIN (RX) is connected to pin 3 (Arduino's Software TX)
SoftwareSerial XBee(10, 11); // RX, TX

void setup()
{
  // Set up both ports at 9600 baud. This value is most important
  // for the XBee. Make sure the baud rate matches the config
  // setting of your XBee.
  XBee.begin(9600);
  Serial.begin(9600);
  pinMode(31,OUTPUT);
  pinMode(33,OUTPUT);
  digitalWrite(31, LOW);
  digitalWrite(33, HIGH);
  Serial.println("DHTxx test!");
  XBee.write("DHTxx Test!");
  dht.begin();
}

  
  
void loop()
{
  delay(2000);
    // Reading temperature or humidity takes about 250 milliseconds!
  // Sensor readings may also be up to 2 seconds 'old' (its a very slow sensor)
  float h = dht.readHumidity();
  // Read temperature as Celsius (the default)
  float t = dht.readTemperature();
  // Read temperature as Fahrenheit (isFahrenheit = true)
  float f = dht.readTemperature(true);

  // Check if any reads failed and exit early (to try again).
  if (isnan(h) || isnan(t) || isnan(f)) {
    Serial.println("Failed to read from DHT sensor!");
    return;
  }
// Compute heat index in Fahrenheit (the default)
  float hif = dht.computeHeatIndex(f, h);
  // Compute heat index in Celsius (isFahreheit = false)
  float hic = dht.computeHeatIndex(t, h, false);

  XBee.write("Humidity: ");
  XBee.write(h);
  XBee.write(" %\t");
  XBee.write("Temperature: ");
  XBee.write(t);
  XBee.write(" *C ");
  XBee.write(f);
  XBee.write(" *F\t");
  XBee.write("Heat index: ");
  XBee.write(hic);
  XBee.write(" *C ");
  XBee.write(hif);
  XBee.write(" *F");

  Serial.print("Humidity: ");
  Serial.print(h);
  Serial.print(" %\t");
  Serial.print("Temperature: ");
  Serial.print(t);
  Serial.print(" *C ");
  Serial.print(f);
  Serial.print(" *F\t");
  Serial.print("Heat index: ");
  Serial.print(hic);
  Serial.print(" *C ");
  Serial.print(hif);
  Serial.println(" *F");
}

IT displays the proper data in the monitor attached to the Arduino IDE, but in both XTCU and CoolTerm I do not get the values, merely a ‘K’. Please see attached image.

Thank you for your assistance.

There seems to be some confusion about pins here:

// XBee's DOUT (TX) is connected to pin 2 (Arduino's Software RX)
// XBee's DIN (RX) is connected to pin 3 (Arduino's Software TX)
SoftwareSerial XBee(10, 11); // RX, TX

I have the pins connected to 10 and 11, DOUT DIN on the Xbee. I did not change the comments from the original sketch and could not get 2 and 3 to work on the Mega, and was told to use 10 and 11, which worked. Sorry for the confusion. Sloppy on my part.

Because you are using write instead of print, perhaps?

will try that...

Who's the Man? YOU ARE! (sorry for assuming your gender...) That worked! Thank you! You are my favorite person right now...

Why are you using SoftwareSerial on the Mega? What is connected to the four hardware serial port?
