Most commercial aircrafts are be able to land automatically but how many pilots deciding to let the computer landing the birds are not written in concrete.
Normal procedure is to intercept the radial long to the runway, disengage the AP and land manually. Even at bad weather conditions and no one should tell me that is no strange feeling to give the responsibility to a system which should land and you couldnt do anything aside of hit the button last second.
