There is no issue with playing surface at the Liberty Stadium, which has undersoil hearing, and referee Chris Foy has declared himself happy for the game to take place.
The roads around the stadium have been gritted although some bus services in the area have been suspended.
A Swansea statement said: "Despite the snow, the Liberty pitch is in good condition with referee Chris Foy happy with the surface following an inspection.
"The surrounding areas outside the stadium have been classed as safe but we do ask supporters to be cautious when travelling to the stadium and entering the Liberty due to the current weather conditions.
