Yes, there is a scale in kilometers.
You just need to click on the right button of your mouse (or a long press on screen if your are on the phone app). This opens a pop up window where you can select Distance&planning.
By this way you get the exact distance between 2 points, or more.
"In the case of a political dispute please leave such topics out of the Windy forum and instead focus on the discussion of weather." - Regarding to this remark made by moderator:
As you said political dispute need to be out of Windy Forum, while this is you created this issue! While to apologise to having wrong map you teaching as leave this topic. 1) This is your problem as you using wrong map! 2) This is your website issue that WE want to illuminate for you and help to improve and 3) We focused on weather but seeing respectfulness from your side it distract us from why we here!
@rittels Thanks! I'll check it out!
I'm still would like to hear some feedback on my latest request from developers. Right now, there is no way to use the app when you select "Distance & planning" option (long tap anywhere on a map), because you can't save the route and the rest of options are not available when you have selected "Distance & planning".
Why don't you please put that colour scale by default for all users? I think it's much better. I agree now it's very difficult to see the 2-3 meter range.
Starting from dark blue for no waves, after green to yellow for bigger swell, and finally red to violet for storm, gets more intuitive.
Thanks & congratulations for the app !!!
You can customize the colour scale for wind and gusts as you like. However you can do this only on the website, but your settings will be saved for all your devices, including the phone app.

On my side, I have modified the colour scale for wind. If you like it, you can use it. In this way, it is easier to implement:
@mcmer @drhayes Thank you for your warning and sorry for the current situation. Wrong attribution is not intention, but misunderstanding. We will make a new release as soon as possible which will fix that. We respect the OSM Contributors and we are grateful for their work.
