Heavy snowfall left the surface at the Karadjordje Stadium blanketed, but a clearing-up operation was organised after meetings between representatives of the opponents' Football Associations.
The pitch was cleared with the help of some travelling supporters, but with the weather remaining unpredictable a final inspection was called for 6pm (GMT) - 90 minutes before the scheduled kick-off.
Match officials quickly gave the go-ahead, and Scotland will take to the field looking for their first win under Gordon Strachan.
Strachan's side go into the game bottom of Group A, two points behind their hosts, following Friday's defeat to Wales.
